As we age, our concerns turn to how we can live comfortably and safely, while facing the challenges of retirement, illness, and incapacity.
In many cases, adult children have questions about how to best assist their parents in meeting the challenges of aging. Many families also need to address the special needs of minor or adult children who are incapacitated.
Here at Begley, Carlin & Mandio, LLP, we counsel clients and their families facing the prospect of long term nursing home care, including Medicaid qualification issues, and the use of Medicaid qualifying trusts and annuities.
Our firm assists clients with planning for incapacity using general powers of attorney, health care powers of attorney with living wills, and various types of special needs trusts. When these options are not available, we assist clients and their families in securing court-appointed guardians.
Our Elder Law Practice addresses the following issues:
- Estate planning
- Trusts (revocable or living trusts, irrevocable trusts)

- Incapacity planning and guardianships
- General powers of attorney
- Health care powers of attorney
