What You Need To Know About Elder Law

Elder law is all about "what if?" Questions related to aging, such as, "How do I find a care facility for my mom?" "What resources are available for my dad in the community?," "Should we transfer ownership of our house to our children?" are all questions that you may have to deal with in the future.

No one can predict the future with precision, but planning is still important, because situations involving incapacity or elder parents often appear suddenly. They can cascade out of control if the basics have not been thought through and the necessary legal instrument put in place.

Honest And Compassionate

At Parr Price, PS, our attorney is just that. We will assess your situation and listen to you describe your goals. We will then work together to create a plan that will achieve those goals. But we will give you our honest assessment of your goals and if they can be realized. We know how difficult it can be to ask a parent to surrender their keys or suggest they move out of their home, where they may have raised you and where they have lived in for decades.

But we also know how stressful it can be when you are told by paramedics that a parent "will never return home again." Nothing can eliminate that stress, but having a clear plan in place can minimize those situations. We will explain the legal options available and what may work for your circumstance.

There Is No One Solution

Here's the hard part for all of this. There is no 'best' solution. Every option has benefits and risks. Our lawyer has the advantage of 30 years of experience, helping people in Washington work through legal solutions and processes. We use that experience to help you fully understand what you can and cannot control and what are likely outcomes for your particular circumstance.
