The VA Aid and Attendance eligibility rules are expected to change in 2016 and possibly even in the next 30 days. We urge you to act now and get informed on this important earned benefit. Don't wait. If you or a loved one are a veteran or a surviving spouse of a veteran you need to know about this benefit, which can be used to pay for much needed care needs.
Elder Law of Louisville is part of a national group tracking the day to day developments of proposed VA changes. Our attorneys can provide information in an individual consultation or we can speak to your group or organization.

Eileen Walsh was part of a 12 person delegation of U.S. elder law attorneys who traveled to Ireland in November, 2015. The U.S. delegation met with Irish attorneys and judges as well as Irish aging experts. The issues of quality of life and care for older persons are concerns worldwide. These issues are not unique to the United States and invaluable knowledge and insight was gained by Eileen through interacting with her Irish counterparts. She would love to share her experience. Please contact our office to schedule a date for Eileen to come speak to your group about elder law and Ireland. And be sure and wear some green!
