Attorney Ellen Hain visits Boston College to Discuss Long-Term Care and Aging in the United States
Attorney Ellen Hain recently visited Boston College and presented as a guest lecturer to undergraduate sociology students regarding long-term care and aging in the United States.
Attorney Hain had an engaging discussion with students of many backgrounds regarding the complexity of planning for long-term care, benefits systems, and a myriad of issues that arise as older adults become incapable, and how her Elder Law practice helps clients manage these issues.
“Planning for long-term care is complex because each client has unique circumstances that present different challenges to be managed,” she said. “There is no “one size fits all” solution, and even clients with similar circumstances may have different goals and needs.”
She explained that her elder law practice assists clients in navigating issues and potential solutions, including planning for and accessing benefits to help them pay for their care and age in place.
Students were very active and collaborative in the discussion. Many brought up issues their grandparents are facing and had very insightful questions regarding access to care and housing. Attorney Hain concluded the presentation by discussing how she helps her clients handle these issues in her own Elder Law practice.
If you or someone you know is navigating the process of planning long-term care or aging in place, please feel free to reach out to Attorney Hain or any other attorney in Cohen and Wolf’s Elder Law or Trusts and Estates practice groups to learn more about the options and benefits that may be available to you.
