The elder population in the United States is growing rapidly as members of the bubble created by the post-World War II baby boom generation reach their later years. It is not only that we are seeing the effects of the last century’s explosion in births; medical advances have made it possible for people to live longer than ever before. This growing demographic means that issues affecting the elderly are becoming a concern in American society to a much greater extent than in previous generations when people did not live as long. The field of elder law has assumed a new prominence as the elderly become a larger segment of our population.
Legal Issues Affecting Older Americans
Certain issues affect older people to a greater extent than younger ones. Health matters, the specter of disability associated with aging, long-term care, and estate planning are some of the significant concerns of the older generation.
The elder law attorneys at Arizona’s Gorman Law Group, PLC, are skilled at helping seniors address these and other issues as they plan for the future. We are all living longer. We understand that concerns and issues that might not have occurred to our parents or grandparents are of the utmost importance to people approaching their senior years today. We work with elders to plan for their later years to ensure that their wishes are honored and that they can live comfortably until the end of life. We help them plan their legacy, working out individualized strategies to pass along the assets accumulated over the course of a lifetime to the next generation.
Unique Needs Require Unique Solutions
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to legal solutions to the concerns of the elderly because each individual has unique circumstances, needs, and desires. When you come to Gorman Law Group, PLC, our attorneys take the time to get to know you, discover what concerns have, what your family situation is, what assets you have, and how you want your later years to look. We help you set goals that are in keeping with your wishes, your needs, and the needs of your family, and then plan strategies to achieve those goals.
