Elder Law

Seniors face a number of challenges that go along with aging. The death of a spouse, diminished ability to handle personal and financial affairs, declining health, and hospital or nursing home admissions are just a few. These challenges are quite often accompanied by legal issues which require the expertise of an attorney who understands the constantly changing laws and regulations that pertain to estate planning, tax issues, Medicaid planning and long-term care planning. The elder law attorneys at Bolhouse, Baar & Hofstee have the experience and dedication needed to counsel, educate and advocate for our seniors and their adult children who are facing these challenges.
