Attorney Hadaway has been representing seniors and their loved ones with compassionate zeal, focusing her practice primarily in the areas of Medicaid Planning & Crisis Medicaid, Asset Preservation (Life and Estate Planning), Wills and Trusts, Estates and Probate, Probate Litigation, Conservatorships, Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, Advance Directives, Nursing Home Patient's Rights, and Veteran's Benefits.
Attorney Hadaway, herself, has experienced both her mother-in-law’s incapacity by severe stroke (and surviving for 13 years afterward) as well as her mother’s diabetes, eventual blindness, hearing loss, and mental decline –and her accompanying transition from independence to assisted living to skilled nursing home care. In short, Attorney Hadaway is very familiar with the Elder Care Journey, and understands that traditional estate planning for death is not enough. Her inquiry and planning options compassionately answer the question:
What if I have a chronic illness, but don’t die?
