Elder Law is an ever-changing and highly diverse area of law that generally refers to the legal issues of Senior Citizens, including estate planning, plans for incapacity or mental incompetence, health care, other benefits, and final medical care. Many issues faced by Senior Citizens arise due to a lack of effective estate and probate planning, including a lack of a Durable Medical Power of Attorney or Living Will, and a lack of a Durable General Power of Attorney to ensure proper protection of their legal rights as well as their day-to-day financial management needs.
