Just like it makes sense for seniors to seek out geriatricians for their medical care, it also makes sense for older people to find a lawyer who specializes in issues of aging. As you age, legal issues may arise that are specifically related to changes in your physical or mental health, housing, finances or property. Lawyers who specialize in elder law tend to take a more holistic view of legal problems that surface, and they often work with such other professionals as social workers and geriatric care managers to craft the best solution, whether it’s a legal solution or just something more practical. The National Association of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) has a website aimed at both consumers and attorneys. Through this website you can find not only a local attorney who specializes in aging matters but also descriptions of some of the legal issues that may arise as you or your loved ones grow older.
