By 2030, 19 percent of the U.S. population will be age 65 or older, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Foster Swift elder law attorney, Norman E. Richards ("Gene"), has launched a new Michigan Senior Law Blog that addresses common questions about the challenges of aging– from an elder law attorney's perspective.
"Families are faced with overwhelming choices when it comes to caring for a relative with life changing needs. There is a need to have a strong advocate who can help guide them through the health care maze," said Carl Simcox of the Senior Care Network.
The Michigan Senior Law Blog was designed as a resource for senior adults, children and grandchildren who juggle careers and their own family needs while assisting aging loved ones. Subscribers will receive compassionate, practical, timely and reliable information about a variety of topics that will help to manage and optimize quality of life during the aging process.
Richards counsels aging adults and their families through transitions requiring a special focus on planning for long-term care.
"Gene is able to thoughtfully navigate through the options to make sure they are protected financially and legally," said Simcox. "His invaluable guidance provides peace of mind during a very trying time."
Richards strives to be more than just a quick stop for legal documents by serving as a counselor, advisor, planner and a resource. The ultimate goal is to empower senior adults and to allow them to age gracefully in the safest, most respectful environment possible.
