Although most of us prefer not to think about it, we’re growing a little older every day. Unfortunately, too many people ignore their advancing age, avoiding consideration of the legal issues which could affect them greatly in their later years. Those issues, often grouped together under the term “elder law,” will affect what happens to your assets while you are alive, your estate after you pass away, your power of attorney if you are disabled, your medical care, advanced directives and more.
