Guest Blogger Spotlight: Parks & Jones, Attorneys at Law
“That won’t be me.” “I won’t be a statistic.” “My family has promised I’ll never go to a nursing home.” I hope these statements are true for you. But, unfortunately, the reality for 70% of people age 65 and older is much different. Every day families are faced with tough decisions. Whether because of financial situations, medical conditions, or other factors, families often find themselves on the doorstep of the nursing home with someone they love dearly. Overwhelmed. Alone. Without a plan.
Peace of mind, your most priceless asset, is attainable, and we would be honored to help you find yours. At Parks & Jones, we take a personal, comprehensive approach to help families get a plan in place so if the worst-case scenario happens, the family knows there is a plan, and we are there to help walk them through the process. Even if there is no time to plan ahead because your loved one is already in the nursing home or heading there in the immediate future, we can help you protect your assets, protect your family, and make sure you have an advocate as you navigate the process of caring for an elderly loved one.
Clancy Parks, the founder of Parks & Jones, knows first-hand what it’s like to be a child caring for an aging parent. His mother lived with Alzheimer’s for 13 years, almost 9 of which she lived in a facility. Navigating the ups and downs and helping families discover their options is what we do every day because we care about our clients and will do all we can to help them achieve the best results possible, regardless of their financial or family circumstances.
