Guardianship and Conservatorship Attorney in Schenectady
As skilled elder law attorneys, we adeptly represent the elderly and their caring family members. We understand the needs of our elderly clients and how they differ from people who are in a younger age bracket. We provide elder law services that allow our clients to care for those who cannot care for themselves, provide directions for medical situations and help clients with everyday tasks such as paying bills.
The Beebe Law Firm can help you and your loved one establish directives such as:
- Guardianships and conservatorships: A guardianship or conservatorship can be established for elderly adults who are incapacitated and no longer able to care for themselves. If you are named as a guardian, you will be responsible for that individual's well-being and help with daily tasks.
- Health care proxy: A health care proxy allows an individual to make health care decisions on behalf of the elderly individual, given that the individual can no longer make his or her own decisions.
- Power of attorney: Powers of attorney allow someone else to handle your financial and health care decisions. The same person does not need to be named for each. You can name one person to handle financial matters, such as paying bills, and other person for assisting with medical decisions.
- Living wills: A living will states your wishes for end-of-life care regarding resuscitation and life support.
