    planning
    (employment and retirement issues, asset
    protection, estate and gift taxes)
  • Long-term
    care planning
    (long-term care and disability
    insurance, Medicare, resident care facility rights, housing)
  • Guardianship/conservatorship
    (mental
    capacity, safety and welfare, elder abuse)
  • Estate
    planning
    (wills, trusts, probate, funeral preplanning)
