Middleton Law Offices offers elder law services to seniors of the Bowling Green community. Our attorneys understand and recognize that handling end-of-life issues and planning for nursing home or assisted living care can be a difficult situation. Our attorneys are compassionate and consult with our clients to make the process as relaxed and simple as possible. Our Elder Law services include:
Medical Planning - Our attorneys assist seniors and their loved ones in planning for long-term medical care and in qualifying for health care benefits, including Medicare and Medicaid. We counsel and assist clients in drafting living wills and health care powers of attorney, allowing clients to designate someone to make important health care decisions on their behalf.
Nursing Home Planning - At Middleton Law Offices, we can help elderly members of the community to reach the important goals they have set with respect to their living situation. We assist clients in seeking nursing home admissions or in investigating other alternatives to avoid placement in nursing homes. In accordance with the wishes of the client, we can assist elderly members and their families in securing quality nursing home care and in guiding clients through the process of filing nursing home complaints in the unfortunate event that there are concerns with the quality of care.
Guardianships - Attorneys at Middleton Law Offices can also counsel clients on appointing a guardian to protect the property rights and personal wellbeing of elderly family members. Guardianship is a legal process in which a representative is appointed to protect the person and property of an elder when he or she is no longer able to communicate and make sound decisions.
Appointing a guardian can have a significant impact on the individual rights of the elderly person and should be approached with diligence and care.
