What Caregivers Across Pennsylvania Should Know

When you have a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis or the long-term effects of any condition impacting their mental capacity, you can feel isolated. It’s hard for your mental and physical well-being to suddenly have the weight of another’s care and the financial burden. But a skilled guardianship attorney may be able to help you find answers.

At Kreisher Marshall & Associates, LLC, our attorneys are proud to be a part of a long legacy of care and compassion for caregivers across Pennsylvania. You have a difficult burden on your shoulders; you may be a caregiver, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have someone help take care of you. We’re ready to provide support for you in any of your elder law issues; just give us a call at 570-798-1084 to find out what we can help you with.

You Need A Diagnosis First

To gain guardianship over a loved one in Pennsylvania is to take over a person’s finances and personal well-being. This is an extreme step, and it gives the individual with guardianship a great amount of power. You will need to have an applicable diagnosis from an authoritative medical professional to have a chance at success.

We can work with you and a social worker to resolve any potential misstep or pitfall of the petition to have guardianship. Often, we see clients make mistakes, such as:

  • Not protecting their assets
  • Neglecting to set up a medical power of attorney
  • Not filing for necessary social services

We’re committed and detail-oriented and take care of the needs of our clients. Our experience in guardianship law in Pennsylvania makes it a lot easier for you to find success.

Don’t Forget About Yourself

An early lesson taught to most people who work in providing medical support is this: “Take care of yourself.” From emergency responders to nurses to doctors, self-care is important because if your needs aren’t met, how can you effectively care for someone else? We want you to understand the support available to you.
