- What is the difference between Elder Law and Estate Law Planning?
Elder Law helps you and your family plan for your healthcare, home care, nursing home care and preserving your assets during your lifetime. It also includes decision-making documents that will provide your family with the guidance they need. While Estate planning focuses on what to do with your assets after you pass away.
