Gummer Elder Law Serves Seniors of Bucks County, PA

As we age, it becomes necessary to look to the future and think about how we can help our families navigate end-of-life decisions. Planning for the future requires grappling with complex legal requirements and making your decisions and wishes clear. Taking time to plan now, while you are healthy and capable, will ensure that the process is easier for you and your family.

Gummer Elder Law is here to help residents of Bucks, and their families, tackle these difficult and complex issues. Depending on your particular circumstances, there are many different legal options to consider.

Wills - Bucks County, PA

You’ve worked your entire life to provide for your loved ones. Make sure that your family future is taken care. Creating a will lets you control the disposition of your assets after death. A legal will is essential to ensuring your wishes are carried out. Learn more about wills.

Bucks County Living Wills

Modern medicine has brought many life-extending medical treatments. However, this extension of life can involve the extension of suffering. Make sure your wishes around this matter are known. A living will is a legal document giving your doctor instructions in case you are in an end-stage medical condition or a state of permanent unconsciousness. Here is more information about living wills.

Bucks Powers of Attorney

If you become incapacitated or disabled without a power of attorney in place, the courts will be needed to appoint a guardian. A durable power of attorney allows you to appoint the individual who will manage your financial and medical affairs. Learn more about powers of attorney.

Trusts - Bucks County, PA

Depending on your needs, we can assist with multiple types of trusts. Some can be used to provide tax savings while others are used to protect the assets of the beneficiary. Learn more about trusts.

Medicaid (Asset Protection) Planning in Bucks County, PA

Nursing home costs are of great concern for families. Most health insurance plans and Medicare provide only limited coverage for nursing home patients. Without long-term care insurance, the only option is often to pay for out-of-pocket until your assets are depleted and you are able to apply for Medicaid. This can be a complicated process and we can help. Learn more about Medicaid Planning.

Guardianships - Bucks County

If you become disabled or incapacitated without a power of attorney in place, then a guardian must be appointed by the court to care for you and manage your financial affairs. Upon appointment of a guardian, you lose certain legal rights to act on your own behalf, and the guardian will be empowered to act for you. It is possible to avoid this process with proper planning. If you have a loved one who is no longer able to manage important matters, we can help you through the guardianship process.

Probate and Estate Administration - Bucks

Probate is the process proving the validity of your decedents will. Estate administration is the managing of an estate. Gummer Elder Law can assist with both of these processes. Learn more about probate and estate administration.
