Legal documents you need most during COVID-19

Special to the Register

Attorney Scott Collins and his team are working to help Madison County residents protect their assets during these uncertain times.

I know life is crazy with the COVID-19 crisis and what we're having to do for the first time in probably 70 years. Our hearts go out to everyone at this time of anxiety and uncertainty.

We're being called on as a nation to look out for one another. We're having to take special precautions so we can limit the impact of this virus and slow its spread -- that helps us all.

The thing is, other parts of life are not cooperating with us -- our own individual healthcare crises don't shut down just because restaurants and businesses do.

We get sick, we must go to the hospital. Maybe a loved one's already in the hospital trying to get discharged to a rehab unit or a nursing home.

In these times, you need a living will, you need a power of attorney, you need a will -- and that's what we're here for.

Per Governor Beshear's order on March 25, we are canceling in-person meetings except for healthcare emergencies. However, we are offering Expanded Remote Services.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have considered Elder Law Attorneys as essential personnel during the COVID-19 Crisis in order to assist individuals in their urgent healthcare planning needs.

We care about you.

The office is open for phone calls and scheduling, but there are no drop-ins allowed. And most of our staff is working from home. Our expanded options include couriers to drop materials, electronic resources, or documents for signing and review.

We offer a secure electronic portal for document sharing, collaboration and review. We can notarize remotely. We can perform all client meetings via telephone or video.

Our Client Care Specialist works exclusively to assess your needs and plan how we can care for you and keep Social Distancing protocols.

And for those who don't understand all the technology, we will bring it to you (drop off and pick up) in a sanitized case. It's already set up and ready to go. All you need is a cell phone signal at your home; we show you what to do. All of this allows us to care for you and keep you safe.
