Protecting Your Elderly Loved Ones
If your elderly loved one has become incapacitated, there are legal options in place to ensure that he or she is cared for both physically and financially. When you are worried that an elder has lost the ability to think clearly and make decisions that will not harm him or herself, it might be wise to discuss guardianship with an experienced New York attorney.
