We help seniors and their families with legal issues specific to those age 65 and older. One of the most serious challenges facing seniors today is how to pay for the costs of medical care. If you fail to plan for long term medical expenses, you can have your life's savings wiped out. Qualifying for Medicaid or other government benefits potentially available to you like Veterans' Aid and Attendance can mean the difference between losing your life's savings and living comfortably through your golden years. Smith Barid, LLC focuses on helping older Americans plan for their long term care. Through our knowledge of government benefit programs like Medicaid and VA Aid & Attendance and our experience in helping other families plan, we can help you and your family come up with a plan to pay for your medical needs and protect your life's savings.
We also help seniors with estate planning and guardianship issues. If you or your parents need a durable power of attorney (be sure to ask us what an Enhanced Durable Power of Attorney is) or an advanced directive for healthcare, we can help. If you have a loved one who is unable to manage their own affairs, we can assist you with obtaining a guardianship so that you can help them.
