How to handle searching for Elder Law Attorneys

When a loved one is falling sick and needs personal services, it's hard to decide to embark on a search for an elder law attorney. What do you do and what do you say to the elderly spouse or parent who may not believe that they need assistance? A-1 Home Care suggests that family members get together to discuss this, and search for a supportive elder law attorney by doing research and asking for references. 

When you have found an appropriate attorney, make an appointment to see him or her. During the initial consultation, you will be asked to give the attorney an overview of the reason you are seeking assistance, so be sure to organize and bring all the information pertinent to your situation. After you have explained your situation, ask: 
  • What will it take to resolve it?
  • Are there any alternate courses of action
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of each possibility?
  • How many attorneys are in the office?
  • Who will handle your case?
  • Has that attorney handled matters of this kind in the past?

Cervical Health Awareness Month/ A-1 Home Care Culver City

Cervical cancer, a disease that affects the female reproductive system, is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).  HPV is a common virus that can be passed from one person to another during sex.
Cervical cancer is a highly preventable disease because screening tests (such as the Pap test), and vaccines to prevent HPV infections are available. When cervical cancer is found early, it is highly treatable and associated with long survival and good quality of life. At later stages, it can sometimes require surgery.
HPV vaccines offer the greatest health benefit to persons who receive all 3 doses before exposure to HPV. Routine HPV vaccination is recommended for girls and boys at age 11 or 12 years. Vaccination also is recommended for females through age 26 years and for males through age 21 years who have not been vaccinated previously.
Although all women are at risk for cervical cancer, it occurs most often in older and senior women over age 30. For women over age 26 years, the best way to prevent cervical cancer is to get routine cervical cancer screening and maintain good self care, as recommended.
