May is Elder Law Month

Lynn A. Dean
Estate Planning Attorney
The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Inc. (NAELA) established May as Elder Law Month as a way to educate seniors and their families about their legal options in dealing with elder abuse and fraud, long-term and health care planning, Medicaid, Medicare, estate planning, and other important issues

Lynn Dean, proud member of NAELA since 1997, is committed to ongoing outreach to the community with seminars, lectures, presentations and support.  This month we will be posting on the challenges observed as an elder law attorney and useful resources for those who have a concern with an elderly parent or relative.

The challenges of Elder Law are rewarding but increasing as the population ages and the cost of care goes up. Our professions will be serving this population as the baby boomers age and face the same issues. The best advice that we can give our clients and their children is to have those important legal documents in place and communicate their wishes. It will never be easy to transition from independence to a need for assistance. But with compassion, we can protect those we care about, and make sure that they have quality of care in the years that they are with us.

If your organization, association or club is interested in having Lynn A. Dean present a topic of interest related to Elder Law, Contact us 916-786-7515 to determine when she is available.  To learn more about estate planning and elder law or view past presentation topics visit our website speaking engagement topics.
