Many seniors are on a large number of prescription medications. This raises an important question: What do you do with prescription medications after a death? The answer depends on a number of different case-specific factors. Here, our Pennsylvania elder law attorney provides an overview of the key things that you should know about navigating prescription medication after a loved one’s death.
Elderly people need proper care. Unfortunately, elder neglect is a persistent problem—and it can put a vulnerable person at a serious health and safety risk. An older adult who is neglected does not receive the basic necessities, such as food, water, shelter, clothing, hygiene, and essential medical care.
Every person has a legacy to protect. You should have a well-structured, fully personalized estate plan and elder care plan in place. When done properly, estate planning is about far more than determining who gets to inherit what. It is about putting the right system in place to protect yourself, your family, and your finances.
Alarmingly, the AARP reports that nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults—including one-quarter of senior citizens—do not even have a valid will in place. Of course, an aging parent may not be able to handle their own finances later in life. To best protect your parents, you need to gather and organize a wide range of financial documents.
