Overwhelmed?

Overwhelmed with the prospect of caring for your aging parents? You’ve come to the right place.

I, along with one of my daughters, first met with Leanna with the thought in mind of making things less complicated for my children when I die. I am beyond eighty and feel this will be a parting gift to my children sometime in the future. Leanna prepared and explained all the necessary documents. She was very patient in answering our many questions and seemed most knowledgeable. She has always been available by telephone for any further questions My daughter and I feel fortunate to have Leanna as our Attorney. ~ M., Elder Law Client

  • Your parent (or aunt or uncle) is declining and you’ve realized just how bad it’s become,
  • Your parents did their estate plan years ago, and you have the documents but you have no idea what they mean or if they are still effective.
  • You’ve been put in charge of getting a handle on things. Maybe your siblings have handed everything off to you, maybe you are an only child.
  • You promised your parents you’d never put them in a nursing home, but you don’t think they are safe at home,
  • You went through your parent’s mail and noticed bills that are unpaid, services they’ve signed up for but don’t need, and endless requests from questionable charities for money,
  • You need to know about the laws affecting long term care, Medicaid, probate, what your duties and responsibilities are as health care proxy and power of attorney.
  • Oh, and in addition to dealing with all that, you are trying to live your own life and could really use some help.

Sound familiar? The Clarity and Confidence Consultation is for you.

The fee for the Clarity and Confidence Consultation is $725.00.  The meeting includes:

  • My review and analysis of your parent’s estate plan documents before the meeting,
  • My review and analysis of your parent’s finances before the meeting,
  • The office consultation with me where you will learn: what your responsibilities are as your parent’s agent, how their existing estate plan works and if any changes are needed (or what the consequences of their lack of a plan will be), how their financial situation will affect their medical care, the consequences of any past financial decisions, and the ramifications of future plans so you and they can make informed decisions.
  • A comprehensive letter with recommendations from me,
  • Referrals to geriatric care managers, Alzheimer’s coaches, more supportive living environments and other care providers as needed.
  • Clarity about the situation and the next steps, including what additional legal work may need to be done and what the fees will be for that work.
  • Confidence in your role as your parent’s care-giver and advocate.
  • A 30 minute follow up phone call within 6 months to review any changes or ask additional questions.

If this sounds like just what you need (and your parents live in Massachusetts,) please call my office at 781-749-2284 or email me at Leanna@HamillLawOffice.com to get started. I look forward to talking to you.
