Living Wills in Bedminster, PA

Modern medicine has brought many life-extending medical treatments. However, this extension of life can include the extension of suffering. Make sure your wishes around this matter are known.

Powers of Attorney - Bedminster

If you become disabled to the point of being incapacitated without a designated power of attorney, the courts will be needed to appoint a guardian. A durable power of attorney allows you to designate the individual who will manage your financial and medical affairs if you become disabled or incapacitated.

Medicaid (Asset Protection) Planning - Bedminster, PA

Nursing home expenses are a huge concern for families. Most health insurance plans and Medicare provide only a limited amount of coverage for nursing home patients. Without long-term care insurance, the only option is often to pay for the nursing home yourself until your assets are depleted and you are able to apply for Medicaid. This can be an arduous process. But Gummer Elder Law can help. Go here for more on Medicaid Planning.

Guardianships - Bedminster, PA

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.
