Elder Law, Aged Care & Retirement Villages

A Listening Ear to Determine and Action YOUR Needs and Wants

Elder Law & Aged Care

There are a lot of things to consider as we grow older – appointing an Attorney in case of loss of capacity, making or up- dating your Will, putting in place an Advance Health Care Directive for your health care, choosing a retirement village or aged care facility. These are just some of the many decisions you may have to make for yourself or with which you may have to assist a parent or loved one. It is best to plan ahead and avoid crisis management.   McColm Matsinger Lawyers, a local Sunshine Coast law firm have a team of professionals who can help you in putting all the pieces together.
