On May 26, 2016, Lambert Elder Care Law will host a Medicaid Planning seminar in Tifton which is open to the public at no charge.

With 10,000 Americans turning 65 every day and a projected 40 million Americans 65 years or older, this is an underserved segment. Baby boomers are growing older, living longer, and with fewer resources for long-term care. The importance of planning for one’s needs is essential.

Bob Lambert has practiced Law for 26 years and now focuses his practice entirely on Elder Law and Estate Planning. He is a member of ElderCounsel, Wealthcounsel, The Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and the Life Care Planning Law Firm Association; as well as the Georgia and Texas Bar Association.

What is ElderCounsel you may ask? ElderCounsel was started in 2007 with a partnership between WealthCounsel and four nationally recognized elder law and special needs attorneys, which has now grown into the premier nationwide membership organization focusing on elder law and special needs.

May is National Elder Law Month. This designation was established by the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) as a way to acknowledge the profession that supports the senior community with all of their planning needs. Elder Law Month is recognized by attorneys across the country, many of whom offer special activities to educate the public about this important area.

Elder Law and Special Needs Law are specialized areas that involve representing, counseling and assisting seniors, people with disabilities and their families in connection with a variety of legal issues. The Elder Law and Special Needs Law attorney handles estate planning and counsels clients about planning for incapacity with health care decision-making documents. The Elder and Special Needs Law attorney also assists clients in planning for possible long-term care needs, including at-home care, assisted living or nursing home care. Locating the appropriate type of care, coordinating public and private resources to finance the cost of care and working to ensure the client’s right to quality care are all part of the Elder and Special Needs Law practice.
