Increasingly, the law has recognized the need to protect and enforce the key role elder individuals play in our society. The law has also created new mechanisms that are designed to prevent the exploitation of our valued seniors. Elder law is a term that encompasses this sentiment, and this area of practice includes various legal tools designed to promote the well-being of seniors. The family law lawyers at Castle & Associates, a premier Calgary law firm, are innovators in the area of elder law. We are compassionate advocates for those most in need of our legal services.
Helping Older Adults With Their Legal Needs
For many older adults, planning for their future care and finances is a priority. Our law firm can discuss with you the benefits of having an enduring power of attorney and personal directive, which can help you to determine who will act in your best interests when and if you are unable to make your own choices about your health and finances. We can also help you to draft an up-to-date will in a way that gives effect to your wishes and protects the interests of your beneficiaries.
Guidance To Loved Ones Of The Elderly
When older adults do not have legal mechanisms in place to guide actions made on their behalf, they are particularly vulnerable when they become incapacitated. We represent family members in applications for adult guardianship and trusteeship so they can make sure their elderly loved ones are cared for and their interests are protected.
