Caring for elders is a point of contention that families would rather not think about. Estate planning, health care options, financial representation, housing, guardianship, and will-drafting are daunting and emotional tasks to fulfill when the time comes. The attorneys at Shalloway & Shalloway, P.A. help make this transition as easy and painless as possible.
