Insight is always better than hindsight.

Elder law focuses on the legal, financial and health care issues of anyone over age 50 – not as old as one would think. It pays to plan ahead and be proactive   – rather than reactive if a crisis arises.

For example, how long would your life savings last if you needed assisted living that cost $86,000 per year? Or a room at a nursing home at $185,000 per year? Or even a home health aide at $27 per hour per day?

Your assets should go to the people you love. Kearns & Kearns will help you plan for that – with strategies that preserve your assets and public benefit opportunities, while minimizing taxes.
