Caring for an elderly spouse, parent, or other family members can be a difficult and emotional job.
Unfortunately, many people put off planning for elder care, either for themselves or for their parents, and often have to make difficult decisions when an urgent situation arises.
The elder law attorneys at Ruschell & Associates can assist in preparing estate planning documents, typically powers of attorney and advanced directives that allow you to make decisions for your family members when they can no longer do this for themselves.
We can also review what assets are available and put together a strategic plan for their proper use. Elder law attorneys provide valuable assistance on Medicaid, Medicare, Veteran’s Benefits, Probate, and Estate planning.
Our elder law attorneys can assist you with the following:
A Will serves as an instruction manual for your wishes, to whom and how your estate is distributed, your funeral arrangements, and allows you to appoint guardianship for minor children.
Hold and protect your assets and your loved ones. A trust is a great way to plan for your future and the future of your beneficiaries.

The process for administering an estate is dictated by the state of Pennsylvania and often overshadowed by the grief and burden faced by the loved ones left behind.
