Today I spent 2 1/2 hours meeting with an attorney who specializes in elder law. My sister joined in via conference call. Needless to say that we were both overwhelmed. The lawyer had so much information to give us including info about trusts, geriatric care managers and assisted living contracts. She even talked about how I should handle having POA. This is daunting stuff to say the least. I'm glad that my sister was there as a second set of ears. I don't think either of us expected the meeting to be so long. But I'm glad that I went. This lawyer came highly recommended so I was quite pleased by her thoroughness.
