We will answer your questions about the best Elder Law options for you and your loved ones in the Spokane and surrounding communities, including Idaho. Our practice is limited to Elder Law and Estate Planning, taking a personalized approach to your legal needs – with skill and compassion.
Elder Law encompasses Long-Term Care planning, as well as fundamental Estate Planning documents, such as Wills, Durable Powers of Attorney, Health Care Directives, Trusts, and Probates or Probate Alternatives. Unlike traditional Estate Planning, Elder Law also includes Long-Term Care and disability planning, incorporating asset protection, and utilizing available government benefit programs.
The Long-Term Care needs of you or your loved one present complex legal and social issues. The key to success is having an appropriate care plan in place, and an Elder Law plan to support it. Most people prefer to remain at home if possible. With proper planning we help you achieve your goals, resulting in the highest possible quality of life.
Costs of care in any setting can be enormous. We help you understand what government benefit programs may be available to you to help pay for long-term care, such as Medicaid or Veterans Affairs. Surprisingly, Medicaid may allow retention of substantial resources by a spouse or family member. The rules for these programs are complicated and change frequently, so it is critical to consult with Lynn St. Louis, your experienced Spokane Elder Law attorney.
