An Elder Law Attorney Provides Peace of Mind Throughout Your Golden Years.

Elder Law in Tennessee

According to the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability, during the next 15 years, the state will experience a 58 percent growth in the number of residents who are 65 and older. In 2018, the U.S. Census recorded over 52 million people over the age of 65 in the United States. It estimates that the number will grow to approximately 98 million by the year 2060. Also, according to the U.S. Census in 2019, the state of Tennessee had a population of approximately 1.15 million people that were age 65 years or older. As the government struggles to provide health care and other vital services to an aging population, individuals who fall into this age demographic should take steps to plan for future financial and healthcare needs.

Even if you have a comprehensive estate plan, as you age your needs change and it is important to adjust your estate plan accordingly. 

We will help you plan for aging you by giving you the tools and guidance to create a plan that achieves your goals. At the law offices of Attorney Phillip R. Walker, we are knowledgeable and experienced at helping individuals and their families address financial and health care concerns.

We can help you with:

  • Durable Powers of Attorney.
  • Living Wills and Health Care Powers of Attorney.
  • Guardianships and Conservatorships.
  • Amending existing Wills.
  • Supplemental Needs Trusts.
  • Succession planning.
  • Fighting elder abuse.

Tennessee Legal Advocates For The Elderly

End of life planning provides peace of mind for your loved ones. Aging, disability and death cause stress on your loved ones. Decisions have to be made about finances, healthcare and end of life care while coping with a serious illness or death. Planning ahead for the inevitable leaves a legacy of memories, not controversy. Planning ahead lifts the burden of healthcare decision making from your loved ones. Planning ahead can protect you from exploitation and abuse and can avoid costly court proceedings. 

Consulting a Tennessee lawyer who is knowledgeable in elder law and estate planning can help you avoid these risks.
