Gresham Elder Law Attorney Kristianne Cox
• If you believe that it is time for your ailing spouse or other adult relative to move into a long-term care community (such as assisted living, an adult foster care home, or memory care), can the Medicaid (not Medicare) program help pay for the cost of that long-term care community?
• What legal steps can you take when you realize that your aging parent is no longer able to adequately care for himself or herself?
• What legal steps can you take when your formerly conscientious parent is letting bills go unpaid, or worse, may have become the target of a financial predator?
Family members can make better decisions about these and other difficult questions if they educate themselves first. Links to a few helpful sites can be reached by clicking on “LINKS TO USEFUL RESOURCES” at the top of this page in the dark blue bar.
If you would like to schedule a brief (up to 15 minutes) telephone conversation with attorney Kristianne Cox at no charge, or if you would like to schedule an office consultation (hourly attorney rates apply) with her, please call Ms. Cox or send her an email.
- Attorney Kristianne Cox has sole and absolute discretion about whether or not to have a telephone conference with any person;
- The legal issue is within Ms. Cox’s three legal practice areas (Guardianships/Conservatorships for Adults; Medicaid Counseling; and Powers of Attorney). If the issue concerns a possible Guardianship/Conservatorship for an adult, the matter must be in either Multnomah County or Clackamas County, Oregon. If the issue concerns the Oregon Medicaid program for long-term care services, the potential Medicaid (not Medicare) applicant may live anywhere in Oregon;
- No person has previously spoken with Ms. Cox about the particular adult who is, has been, or might become the subject of a protective proceeding (such as a guardianship or conservatorship);
- No person has previously spoken with Ms. Cox about Oregon Medicaid long-term care services for the particular disabled adult or older adult who has applied for or might in the future apply for Medicaid (not Medicare);
- No person has previously spoken with Ms. Cox about the particular adult who is the principal on an existing power of attorney or who may become the principal on a power of attorney;
- Only one person will participate in the telephone call with attorney Kristianne Cox; and
- At the beginning of the call, the caller must provide the first and last names of those persons involved in the particular legal situation that is the subject of the telephone call so that Ms. Cox can run a conflict of interests check.
