The golden years of life can be some of the most rewarding and fulfilling, but they also bring unique challenges. I am Anne B. Little and I take pride in helping senior citizens enjoy their retirement secure in their care and future. At the Law Office of Anne B. Little, PLLC, I assist families in Burnet, Llano, Blanco, Lampasas and San Saba counties in protecting and providing for their elder loved ones.
I address your concerns about your elder relative’s future medical care while shepherding you through the methods available to address them. I can also help you plan for what happens if an elder relative becomes incapacitated. Among the tools that can be used are a durable power of attorney, which authorizes a trusted individual to take action in the principal’s best interest, and a living will, which tells your family and physicians which life-sustaining medical procedures are authorized or not authorized.
I can assist you in maneuvering through the red tape of Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance to provide that your elder relative receives the medical care and medications they need. Medicare is health insurance available to all citizens over the age of 65 or those who have certain qualifying disabilities or health conditions. Medicaid is public assistance that is available to:
I can advise you how to create a qualifying arrangement for these benefits and also how to provide for medical and nursing care using special tools, such as a Miller Trust.
Seniors are often the target of unscrupulous fraudsters or subject to abusive or neglectful caretakers in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. If you or your loved one is the victim of a financial scam, nursing-home negligence or domestic violence, I can help. I will pursue all available legal means to safeguard their well-being and dignity. The state of Texas has a strict 2-year statute of limitations on claims of elder abuse, so it’s important to consult an experienced counselor as soon as concerns arise.
