Elder Law is the area of practice that focuses primarily on issues pertaining to the health, legal and financial welfare of seniors and to a great extent, individuals with disabilities. Special effort is made to address the varied issues that affect preparation for retirement, disability, incapacity, long term healthcare needs, estate planning and life care plans and eligibility for public benefit assistance.
The Elder Law Center-Surgeon Law Firm is conveniently located in the recently, beautifully built Elder Care Resource Center of North Carolina located at 405 Dunn Road in Lumberton, NC. Our firm is pleased to offer services which include education, community resource collaboration and coordination and document preparation for estate and life care plans. We offer private and public educational seminars, wherein we discuss long term care insurance, veterans’ assistance program for veterans and surviving spouses, and preparation for long term nursing care. We discuss fully the various aspects of life care plans and prepare the necessary documents to carry out the wishes of the client, including, powers of attorneys – financial powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney, living wills; wills, trusts and annuities.
At The Elder Law Center-Surgeon Law Firm, our goals are first – to assist the client in having the maximum opportunity for independent, quality of life “in place” for as long as possible in the most economical manner possible. Second, when it is no longer possible for the client to age independently “in place”, we assist the client in preparing for assisted living or nursing home care and costs while at the same time, preserving the maximum amount of assets for the client’s family.
