Elder Law of East Tennessee is not your average law firm; it is a non-traditional practice that takes a holistic approach to elder law by offering a unique combination of legal expertise and care coordination. By combining the skills of a Certified Elder Law Attorney with those of a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Geriatric Care Manager, Elder Law of East Tennessee is able to provide a broad range of elder care solutions, ranging from basic Estate Planning to long-term Life Care Planning. Our care coordinator, a professional with more than 25 years' experience in home health and geriatric social work, helps families grasp the nuances of the older adult's physical and cognitive needs, guides them as they develop a care plan, assists with care transitions, and advocates on behalf of the older adult.
Elder Care Coordinator Connie Taylor, LCSW, NCG, is an experienced and well-respected geriatric care manager. Amelia describes Connie as "the person I want helping my families coordinate care. She's a great advocate and she has a caring, no-nonsense way about her that gives my clients a lot of confidence about the choices they have to consider. I know with Connie on board, my clients are going to have the very best care in this community that the clients can afford."
