Hospice Care / End-of-Life Planning
We are caring, trustworthy attorneys who provide solutions for families
Your loved one may now require hospice care, or perhaps you are considering end-of-life care for a family member. Hospice care is used when support services are needed for someone whose death is imminent. Hospice offers a means to relieve physical, emotional and spiritual suffering.
While most people in New Jersey have an idea of what hospice care is about, they typically have not made plans for hospice care until a loved one has approached the end of his or her life. A family member might have only months to live, or in some cases days to live.
Our attorneys at Price and Price, LLC understand how difficult this time can be for family members. We provide highly skilled representation for families who need help with hospice care and end-of-life legal planning. Price and Price brings almost 100 years of combined experience to each case. We don't treat our clients like numbers or statistics. While we are South Jersey's largest elder law firm, we make sure our clients receive the personalized attention they deserve. Such attention is especially critical when families are coping with the imminent loss of a loved one.
