Elder Law Planning Websites and Resources

If you are wondering what Elder Law is, you are not alone. This particular field of law hasn’t been around that long. It started in 1965 during the Lyndon B. Johnson administration with the Older Americans Act (OAA), which was designed to help aging Americans and is a division of the Department of Health and Human Services. Since this time, additional parts have been added to helping our nation’s elderly. These have included additions to the OAA with amendments to the 1972 National Nutritional Program for the Elderly and The National Family Caregiver Support Program in 2000.
In today’s world, we understand that growing older isn’t easy. With all of the changing laws and misinformation on the news, it is difficult to know where to turn. Over the past year or so, we’ve been writing articles to help you learn more about Elder Law planning and how to protect yourself and your loved ones in case you become ill. One of the questions we’re often asked is: “Do you have this information in a place that is easily accessible?”
