Long-Term Care Planning | Elders And Special Needs

Moore Leonhardt & Associates advises medical businesses, service providers and individual practitioners such as social workers in varied business and legal aspects of elder care and special needs care planning and delivery.

Our firm also works with family members in need of legal advice when dealing with care providers and managing support for elderly and disabled people they assume responsibility for.

For Care Providers

Our firm advises on critical areas of concern for long-term care providers, including skilled nursing facilities, assisted living homes, rehabilitation centers and home health care agencies, including:

  • Licensure, survey and certification
  • Contracting and employment issues
  • Medical records management
  • Defensive documentation training
  • HIPAA and other privacy-related issues
  • Advance directives and surrogate decision-making
  • Family member disability assistance
  • Professional liability defense, both preventative and reactive
  • Crisis management, correction plans and informal dispute resolution
  • Regulatory compliance and quality of care investigations
  • Board development and governance
  • Fraud and abuse avoidance
  • Investigations, complaints and appeals

Owners and management of long-term care facilities, practitioners such as head nurses in assisted living facilities and directors of programs and agencies often turn to Moore Leonhardt & Associates. We provide comprehensive, integrative guidance covering medical, legal and business aspects of long-term care planning and delivery.

Elder Care Advocacy For Family Members

Adult children and others who take responsibility for elderly and disabled people need legal advice and advocacy from time to time. Problem areas often include interactions and transferal issues between care facilities (such as when a hospital patient prepares to move to a rehabilitation center or to a skilled nursing facility), unrealistic expectations professionals often have for family care situations and more. Health care proxy issues, financial matters and complaints by family members against care facilities are all topics of interest to Connecticut lawyer (and former RN) Mary Alice Moore Leonhardt and the rest of our legal team.
