Elderly and Disabled Planning – What are the Requirements?

By Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. a New Jersey Elder Care Attorney
Planning scenarios for elderly and disabled persons include the following:
1. The Provision for management of the financial affairs of the dependent in the event they are unable to do so themselves.  This employs such techniques as durable powers of attorney, revocable living trusts, and nominations of persons the individual would want to serve as a guardian or conservator in the event he/she needs someone to manage his or her affairs.
2.  Providing for the support of individuals who, due to age and/or health, are no longer self supporting and have not accumulated sufficient assets to provide for their cost of living.
3. Planning for long term health care, including possible institutional care.
4. Protecting property from claims of the state or federal government for reimbursement of health care costs.
