Who will advocate for your loved one's assisted living needs?

When you were growing up, your parents likely made personal sacrifices in order to provide for your best interests. Perhaps they went without luxuries or vacations so that they could pay for braces you needed for your teeth or send you to sports camp every summer. Now, you're older and so are they, and you want to help them transition to a Georgia assisted living center while making sure their best interests are protected.

There's a lot more involved in helping an aging parent transfer to an assisted living environment than finding a place to live. There are also numerous financial issues to consider and perhaps medical needs that your loved one might have, which might require specialized care. If your parent has shown signs of dementia and has named you as power of attorney in an estate plan, you may soon be making financial or medical decisions on his or her behalf.

If your parent is still of sound mind and has not yet executed an estate plan, this is a topic you might want to broach before he or she transitions to an assisted living facility. It can be helpful to enlist the aid of someone well-versed in elder law to help you advocate for your parents as they try to make life changes while protecting their assets. If a particular legal problem arises, as is often the case, you have a better chance of resolving the issue if an experienced long-term care planning attorney is on hand.

J. Kevin Tharpe, P.C., can address any and all assisted living issues and other elder law matters in Georgia. Your parent's well-being is of the highest priority. By requesting a consultation, you can take the first steps toward helping your parent secure a solid long-term care plan.
