The Pennsylvania Association of Elder Law Attorneys currently has more than 180 members. These attorneys provide legal counsel and assistance to those looking to the future, those for whom the elder years are rapidly approaching, and those currently dealing with the struggles and unique complications of “old age.”
An elder law attorney deals with long-term care planning, end-of-life issues, housing assistance and options, elder abuse, neglect and exploitation, age discrimination in employment, veterans’ benefits, services of the Area Agencies on Aging, the legal rights of residents of nursing facilities, and federal and state legislation affecting the elderly.
So what is Elder Law?
