Roland Stock, LLC attorneys have been serving the needs of the aging population in Berks County for more than 25 years. Although providing many of the same services under the term “estate planning,” legal services for the elder population became known as Elder Law in the 1990s.
Our Elder Law attorneys handle the provision of legal services to meet the needs of the elderly community including, but not limited to, traditional estate planning such as Wills, Powers of Attorney, Guardianships and Living Wills; tax planning, often relating to retirement; Social Security and pension issues; medical insurance issues relating to Medicare, Medigap Insurance and Long Term Care Insurance; and especially Long Term Care Planning for nursing home admissions, often known as Medicaid Planning. These issues arise for various populations including the elderly and their care givers.
Nursing Home/Medicaid Planning has become a critical area of law due to the ever-increasing number of senior citizens and the rapidly increasing cost of long term care. Due to the complexity of this area, it is critical that an attorney concentrate in this area in order to develop necessary expertise. Failure to work with a qualified elder law attorney at this crucial time for a family can result in needless spending of assets which could otherwise be saved for a spouse and family. Partners concentrating in the area of Elder Law, Estate Planning and Estate Administration, Robert Kreitz and Victoria Gallen Schutt, would be pleased to meet with you and your family to discuss these complex and sensitive issues related to your elderly loved ones.
