Senior citizens in Michigan face a myriad of legal issues as they age – legal issues that are complicated and difficult for them and their family members to understand. Medicare and Medicaid, estate planning concerns, and asset protection issues are but a few of the issues the elderly are expected to sort out for themselves. Rather than being proactive, the complexity of these issues and others is oftentimes more than enough incentive for elderly residents in Grand Rapids to simply ignore these pressing and important legal concerns and hope they do not cause too great a problem for themselves or their family members.
