Elder Law in the State of Florida
Florida elder law provides a good amount of protection and resources for its elderly population. Title III of the Older Americans Act mandates that funds be allocated to helping senior citizens. In Florida, this includes anyone age 60 and above.
This can constitute legal assistance, independence assistance, home care, healthcare, and more. Florida also provides consumer protection, abuse and neglect security, and guardianship protection for elders.
Additionally, the state of Florida has certain laws and safeguards around maintaining a homestead if an elderly citizen goes into care at a nursing facility or in assisted living. However, there are restrictions on attempting to maintain or gift liquid assets such as income in order to protect them.
Senior citizens are entitled to a free half-hour consultation through the Florida Bar Lawyer Referral Service, after which the fees are negotiable based on the ability to pay.
