The Alzheimer’s Association estimates that one American develops Alzheimer’s every 68 seconds, and they expect to see this figure rise to one American every 33 seconds by 2050.

Having seen so many of my client’s confronted with Alzheimer’s disease, I wanted to do something to help.

I wrote these two “You’re Not Alone” books for both the person who has received an Alzheimer’s diagnosis and for their caregivers. These books contain my best advice for making smart decisions and preventing costly mistakes.

The information in these books is the exact information that I would share with a family member or good friend.

So, watch these videos and contact our office to receive either or both of these FREE books.

Need Assistance With Alzheimer’s Planning?

Alzheimer’s planning typically has two separate components – financial planning and healthcare planning. The Stano Law Firm stands ready to assist you with both. Working with us as your elder law planning firm is a crucial first step in securing the long-term financial wellbeing of your family, as well as the health of your loved one.

The Stano Law Firm has decades of experience helping Ohio residents with Alzheimer’s planning. Here are the steps we take to ensure our clients receive the best possible legal representation when it comes to Alzheimer’s planning:

  • Estate Planning – The first step in Alzheimer’s planning is a review of the current estate plan. We will help you compile a comprehensive financial snapshot of the patients’ accounts which will enable us to make the right financial choices moving forward.
  • Legal Documents – Legal documents to assist the patient with their decision making when they are impaired are another crucial step that we have a great deal of experience with. Whether you need power of attorney or a health care proxy drafted – or both, we can help.
  • Asset Protection – Once a person has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, they will no longer be eligible for long-term healthcare insurance, which can put their assets at risk.  The Stano Law Firm can help you explore the Medicaid Asset Protection Trust program, as well as alternative asset protection strategies.

What makes us different? Why should you choose the Stano Law Firm instead of another elder law attorney? Here are some things that make us different from every other elder law firm in Cleveland:

“I’ve found Paul Stano to be a wonderful asset for our nursing facility’s residents and families”

“I’ve found Paul Stano to be a wonderful asset for our nursing facility’s residents and families. He excelled in assisting our residents to obtain Medicaid and VA benefits. He has also helped families during the trying time of dispersing funds and getting things in proper financial order to preserve assets and pay for long-term care. Paul’s friendly and down-to-earth. He’s also very dedicated to helping people in the region become better educated on the importance of pre-planning for long-term care. It’s a good investment to go and see him.
