What is the difference between and Power of Attorney and guardianship?
A Power of Attorney is a legal document whereby an individual names one or more people to make financial decisions on his or her behalf, if the individual is unwilling or unable to make financial decisions independently.
Guardianship refers to a legal proceeding where the Probate Court appoints one or more people to make health and personal welfare decisions on behalf of an adult with an intellectual disability (in Connecticut, and IQ of 69 or lower).
Some of our primary areas of practice in elder law include:
- Applying for state and federal benefits applicable to medical care, in-home care, or nursing home care
- Preparing a legally sound Last Will and Testament that specifically addresses your wishes
- Planning to protect your spouse if you pass on
- Determining how to best protect your assets while ensuring they are distributed according to your wishes
- Creating a power of attorney to designate a person to make legal decisions in the event that you are unable to make these decisions for yourself
- Specifying medical treatment and end-of-life care through health care directives
- Establishing a trust or trusts to provide for loved ones
