On December 12, Trusts & Estates, Elder Law and Special Needs partner Robert M. Freedman and associate Alexis Gruttadauria will present the CLE program, “What Every Attorney Needs to Know About Elder Law.”
The program, which is part of Tarter Krinsky & Drogin’s CLE series, will focus on the most important legal and financial issues facing the growing aging population. Elderly clients worry about how they will manage their health care and finances for the rest of their lives and are particularly concerned about the effects of memory loss and dementia. About 15% of the population is affected by dementia by age 70 and that percentage increases to about 40% by age 90.
Robert and Alexis will go over the legal documents, including health care proxies and powers of attorney, that elderly clients need to provide for themselves for the rest of their lives.
Seniors worry about long-term care. Nursing home care will cost $600 per day – over $200,000 per year. Medicare covers very little long-term care, so payment is a major concern for the aging population. This program will cover how to pay for long term care at home, in an assisted living facility, or in a nursing home and will include an introduction to Medicaid eligibility and planning.
Strategies for assisting clients in addressing final arrangements, probate and probate avoidance will also be provided. If you do not need this training for your clients, you probably need it for your own family.
The program, held at Tarter Krinsky & Drogin’s office at 1350 Broadway, will provide 1 hour of credit in the Professional Practice category.
