In this episode, our guest Josie M. Porras Corporon, CELA, will be diving into the misunderstood world of elder law. This episode is geared towards practitioners who don’t know what an elder law attorney does and when they need to refer their clients to an elder law attorney; as well as to the general public as a guide for where to start when they want to plan for a long term disability in addition to their passing. We will discuss the basics of long term care planning and public benefits and provide examples of when and how to best plan for a crisis.
