Elder law deals with issues faced by the fastest growing segment of our population —the elderly.

 

What Is Elder Law?
Elder Law is an area of law that involves representing, counseling, and assisting seniors, people with disabilities and special needs and their families with a variety of legal issues, ranging from estate planning to long-term care.  

Demand for Elder Law Is Growing
The baby boomer generation is aging and the number of older individuals in the U.S. is projected to increase to 71.5 million in 2030, representing nearly 20 percent of the national population. As a result, the need is growing for legal advice unique to age-related issues. As people are living longer and having fewer children, there is a rising concern that individuals may not have the family support and financial resources they need as they age.  Attorneys who focus in Elder Law provide a holistic perspective and deal with the entire life spectrum, addressing legal, financial, social and family issues.  

At Miller, Miller & Canby, we help families navigate through the complexities involved in arranging for complex health care, long-term care, and other issues facing those who are caring for elderly or disabled individuals. We can also recommend valuable resources to help individuals who may be caring for a person who is elderly, disabled or has special needs.
