Aging Independently

What is Aging Independently and How Can an Attorney Help?

Today, millions of older adults have never married or had children, have lost their spouse/partner, or have family members who now live far away. Aging Independently, also known as “Solo Aging” or the “Elder Orphan” trend, refers to those who will navigate aging without the traditional support system of family or close relatives. A trustworthy and experienced attorney can help you think and work through complex issues, like aging in place affordably and end-of-life choices, while helping you form a support team of like-minded professional advisors and helpers.

Michael is patient and compassionate as he listens carefully and then guides you through the options and process for future planning. He draws on broad and deep relationships across his professional network, including those with wealth advisors, insurance professionals, real estate agents, home-care agencies, assisted living facilities, and social workers (where he is one of the leading lawyers providing continuing education classes).  Michael helps you coalesce the right team for you and treats everyone with respect no matter their situation.
