From time to time we hear about the aging population and the growth of our older citizens. But when we think of it, we don’t often think all that much of reaching 100. Perhaps we should, since some say the centenarian population world wide is slated to increase eight-fold by 2050.

Elder law firms, like ours, can sometimes help with some of the legal issues that crop up for the elderly, in terms of care, long term care, finances, and legal planning. It might be smart to see an elder law attorney if you are quite old to see if your planning is up to snuff.
