And Elder Law is a subject that we don’t seem to pay much attention to until we’re embroiled in a fight on behalf of our parents with a nursing home, Medicare caseworker or some such other bureaucrat. Waiting until you need help with this is waiting too long!
Len Shober, Esquire, of Shober & Rock located at 308 North Main Street, Chalfont, PA, is a firm that specializes in elder law. Len says the best time to have him get to know your family is before your 85-year-old father falls off a ladder or some other tragedy befalls your family. (my 89-year-old father was up on a ladder a couple weeks ago!)
Len grew up in Philadelphia and attended law school at Temple. He started an estate planning practice and eventually moved his practice from Montgomery County to Bucks County.
Before law school he was a family therapist and social worker and now feels that he has been brought full circle – once again doing a type of family crisis intervention that he finds very enjoyable on many different levels.
Len’s firm works with people – the elderly who are facing long-term care issues. His clients are anywhere from the age of 60 to 90’s. If you’ve ever read the book Passages: Predictable Crises by Adult Life, be prepared! The new passages are 60, 70, 80 and 90!
The first step is meeting with the family to prepare for the inevitable decline and entry into the long-term care system. One out of two people in the state of Pennsylvania end up in this system, and there are a lot of protections available to people that they aren’t aware of – Len’s firm can help – give them a call now at 215-345-4301 – before you’re in crisis mode!
