This is the time for attorneys to find out what’s happening in the marketplace and to learn how they can build Elder Law into their practice
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) April 4, 2007
This month, area attorneys will be given the opportunity to hear from an expert regarding the exploding field of Elder Law in a two-day workshop presented by aro Solutions of Charlotte. The workshop to be held on April 13-14 at the Charlotte Marriott SouthPark will feature nationally recognized Elder Law Attorney Timothy Takacs. For more than a decade, Takacs has pioneered an integrated care management and elder-centered planning approach that has redefined the standard of excellence in the delivery of services to the elderly, disabled, and chronically ill.
Following a breakfast and presentation for the public on the morning of April 13, Takacs will commence his attorneys-only workshop entitled, “Creating an Elder-Centered Law Practice: Building Your Services to Succeed in this High Value Niche Market.”
“This is the time for attorneys to find out what’s happening in the marketplace and to learn how they can build Elder Law into their practice,” remarks Takacs. A popular and well-respected writer and speaker, Takacs frequently refers to the “sandwich generation” phenomenon, in which Baby Boomers who are still parenting their children now face a crisis in the care of their elderly parents or loved ones. Takacs’ successful practice in Tennessee has been built around the growing needs of this over-stressed segment of the population and the elderly who too often suffer insufficient means and inferior care.
Using an innovation called the Life Care Plan, Takacs says attorneys can move clients from chaos to peace of mind. The Life Care Plan is designed to encompass every aspect of elder care, utilizing the expertise of a healthcare team made up of Certified Elder Law Attorneys, Elder Care Coordinators, and other professionals. Together, this team is able to analyze the needs of individuals to coordinate care, maximize quality of life, and protect family wealth for future generations.
The services of the Elder Law attorney take on a high value as management of challenging healthcare issues are met through the Life Care Plan, including:
- Long-term care and nursing home financing
- Medicaid and other public benefits eligibility planning
- Asset protection
- Wills and trusts, including advanced directives
- Care coordination
- Care advocacy and crisis intervention
- Financial and health care decision support
- Medicare and insurance counseling
- Probate and estate administration
Takacs’ workshop introduces the concept of the elder-centered law practice, the Life Care Plan process, and steps to transitioning to this niche market in a way that will boost profitability.
