LAW OFFICES OF DIANA DEAN GENDOTTI
We happily work with seniors to review (and update if needed) their existing estate plans (including health and financial power of attorney forms, Wills and Trusts) and/or prepare documents if they do not have any.  This has become a growing issue due to the aging population, longevity, the complications of privacy laws and the fact that often family members do not live close by the senior.

PAYCHEX:
Often when elderly care is needed, the options are to use a temp service that will provide care with many different people coming and going depending on the shift; or, the family will hire one on their own who will remain a constant and will get to know the caregiver.  This is a more realistic and personal approach that our region prefers. Where Paychex comes in is we have reduced package costs to help attain these goals and pay the in-home caregiver or “house hold employee” and help with the tax burden/HR.  This also can be more cost effective method depending on scale.
