Blogs > Elder Care and Special Needs Law Blog

Welcome to Our Elder Care and Special Needs Law Blog!

Elder care and special needs are highly complex, regulated areas of the law.  They are also constantly evolving.  The goal of this blog is to educate consumers and other professionals on new developments, as well as to explore topics of interest to seniors, individuals with disabilities, and their families.  Many clients arrive at an initial consultation with many misconceptions and myths from friends, family, or the internet.  With this blog, we hope to provide a source of reliable information on such topics as Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, aging, elder exploitation, health care decision-making, special needs, trusts, housing and transition options, guardianship, and veterans’ benefits from the attorneys and staff who have dedicated their professional lives to this complex field.

We welcome your comments and suggestions.  If you have any questions about this post or any other related matters, please email me, Shana Siegel, Chair of the Norris McLaughlin Elder Care & Special Needs Law Group, at, or Lori Kayne, our Geriatric Social Worker, at
