While the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, mostly affecting the unvaccinated, is certainly concerning, we want to assure you that the Elder Law Group is committed to providing a safe environment for our clients, visitors and staff at our offices. Throughout the coronavirus crisis, the Elder Law Group has remained open, safe and available to assist our clients and their families with their legal needs.
The firm encourages vaccinations, mask wearing, the use of hand sanitizer and social distancing to help prevent the spread of this virus for all visitors and team members, as advised by the Centers for Disease Control and our local government and health officials. As an essential business, our firm continues to operate during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can make an appointment to meet with our attorneys at your convenience, either in person at one of our offices, over the phone or via video conference.

In this month’s newsletter, we discuss how we work to protect seniors in our informational video on elder abuse and exploitation. Please note: We’ve added captions for those who may be hearing impaired or just want to read along with us. In our blog post, our Associate Attorney Cassandra Jelincic writes about how to keep an inheritance as separate property. We share some news from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid on a newly proposed rule that would allow Medicaid to pay for health insurance and other benefits for home health care workers. Finally, our team shares some news about our recent charitable giving and community outreach.
You can find out more in our newsletter, and as always, please contact us if you have any questions or need further information. Just call (561) 750-3850. Get vaccinated, mask up and have a safe, healthy rest of the summer!
