The state of Texas considers anyone age 65 or over to be elderly. From insurance to social security benefits and elder abuse, age can bring frustrating troubles. Finding a lawyer who understands the laws provided for Elderly Texans can help you approach these with confidence.
There are several Laws in Texas that provide special rights and protections for elderly individuals. For example, did you know that, as an elderly person, you’re qualified to get your very own clinical records even though they are confidential? And elderly individuals have the right to keep and use their own belongings, including buildings, clothes, and decorations, when living in a nursing home.
Elderly Texans can also assign a guardian in advance to make decisions for their health or insurance. The right elder law attorney can help make sure you get the help, protection, and peace of mind you deserve.
