A professional attorney helps an older lady prepare legal documents that will impact her health and safety.As we get older or suffer an injury, we need a little extra help. Home health care providers or caregivers can provide the assistance needed to handle your or your loved one's health and safety needs.

For the uninitiated, home health providers are entities that can come into a person’s home and help with a variety of things that elderly or disabled people need assistance with. This post will highlight a number of the services that home health care companies can provide in connection with the rights of the elderly

Personal care

As you or your loved one gets older, going through life's daily tasks becomes more difficult. One of the most important necessities is tending to your health and hygiene. This may include assistance with bathing, grooming, and dressing for those who cannot do so themselves.

Dieting

Many elderly and disabled people do not want to go to a nursing home, but they don’t have the ability to maintain a steady, healthy diet. A health care provider could help with dieticians and cooks who can make sure their residents get balanced meals.

Home care

A clean home is necessary to live a healthy life. Home healthcare providers can help you or your loved one with cleaning tasks around their home. General cleaning services, including mopping, vacuuming, cleaning kitchens, and bathrooms can help the elderly and disabled be healthier by avoiding bacteria-based diseases.  

Safety

Safety concerns grow as you or your loved one gets older or develops limiting health conditions. Having a caregiver in your home can provide a second set of eyes for risks and a needed assistant to get through your daily tasks. A home health care provider can also offer security management, welfare checks, and rapid response services.

FAMILY LAW 83: A trial court can terminate a parent’s rights and permit a stepparent to adopt a child.

A trial court has discretion to terminate a parent’s rights and permit a stepparent to adopt a child when the conditions of MCL 710.51(6) are met. MCL 710.51(6)(b) requires the petitioner to establish that the other parent had the ability to visit, contact, or communicate with the children, and substantially failed or neglected to do so for a period of two years.

PROBATE 53: The trust agreement included an Incontestability Provision.

A settlor’s intent is to be carried out as nearly as possible. Generally, in terrorem clauses are valid and enforceable. However, a provision in a trust that purports to penalize an interested person for contesting the trust or instituting another proceeding relating to the trust shall not be given effect if probable cause exists for instituting a proceeding contesting the trust or another proceeding relating to the trust.

FAMILY LAW 82: Court stated it would terminate the personal protection order (PPO) after the parties present documentation of the initiation of the divorce proceedings.

However, the trial court concluded that these matters should, in fact, be in the province and the jurisdiction of the Family Division and in that respect, having issued a personal protection order, the Court stated it would terminate the personal protection order after the parties present documentation of the initiation of the divorce proceedings.

FAMILY LAW 77: Court awarded plaintiff sole legal custody; defendant was unwilling to work with plaintiff.

For joint custody to work, parents must be able to agree with each other on basic issues in child rearing including health care, religion, education, day to day decision making and discipline and they must be willing to cooperate with each other in joint decision making. If two equally capable parents are unable to cooperate and to agree generally concerning important decisions affecting the welfare of their children, the court has no alternative but to determine which parent shall have sole custody of the children.
