Protect Your Senior Family Members This Holiday
Before the holidays begin, Long Island and New York City residents can turn their attention to some practical ways of showing thanks and love for their elderly family members.
Giving Thanksgiving a unique twist, Cona Elder Law, an Elder Law and Estate Planning firm based in Melville, LI, is sponsoring a free elder law hotline for adult children and seniors on Wednesday, November 5th. Anyone can call the hotline at 631-390-5000 between the hours of 9 AM to 6 PM. No appointments are necessary.
“Along with preparing turkey and stuffing, it’s a good time to get important concerns out on the table that parents and children have on their minds but may hesitate to discuss,” says Jennifer Cona, Esq., managing partner of Cona Elder Law. “Bringing the generations together to start the conversation and to begin to make these important planning decisions sooner rather than later will save both money and stress.”
By calling the elder law hotline, callers will be able to speak with an attorney about:
- Asset Protection Planning
- Medicaid Benefits
- Estate Planning
- Medicaid Eligibility for Home Care and Nursing Home Care
- Advance Directives (Health Care Proxy, Living Will, Power of Attorney)
- Wills and Trusts
- Probate and Estate Administration
- Special Needs Planning
Callers can also request a copy of “Elder Care Conversations: Speak with Compassion” for tips and suggestions for speaking with parents.
As a bonus for those who wish to speak to an attorney in person on November 5th, you can visit the Susan C. Snowe Caregiver Resource Center located inside Cona Elder Law’s offices at 225 Broadhollow Road, Suite 200, Melville, where an attorney will meet with you to discuss your situation and answer your questions.
Callers and visitors can also request a copy of Cona Elder Law’s free Guide to Elder Law and Estate Planning.
