About Desert Elder Law

Desert Elder Law is a Coachella Valley-based law practice with locations in both Palm Desert and Palm Springs.  Desert Elder Law specializes in assisting seniors and their families address the problems which arise when a spouse or parent needs to transition from home to an assisted living or skilled nursing facility – often as a result of progressive diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease or ALS (Lou Gherig’s Disease.)  Particular emphasis is given to helping clients understand and qualify themselves or a family member for California’s Medi-Cal program while also doing everything possible to prevent the unnecessary impoverishment of the non-institutionalized spouse and preserve hard-earned family assets.
