Special Needs, Elder Law, Wills, Trusts, Estates & Tax Blog

FriedmanReaders of this blog may enjoy examining the excellent materials on the Special Needs, Elder Law, Wills, Trusts, Estates, & Tax Blog prepared by Lawrence Friedman of FriedmanLaw in Bridgewater, New Jersey.

In a recent post, Mr. Friedman discusses contracts with care facilities.  Here is the opening paragraph of his post:

While it always is dangerous to sign any contract without first consulting a lawyer, it is especially risky to sign papers provided by a nursing home, assisted living facility, or other care center upon a loved one’s admission.  First, you likely will be under substantial stress and not in a frame of mind to give the contract the deliberate attention needed.  Second, care facility contracts typically contain jargon foreign to lay persons.   I can almost guaranty that you’d be surprised to learn all the obligations you undertake when signing as ”responsible party” for a nursing home or assisted living resident.
