Practice/Organization Description

Attorney Patricia Bloom-McDonald works with people of retirement age and those approaching retirement age to help them with the preparation and discussion of the sometimes difficult end-of-life legal decisions and the documents that go along with protecting their legal rights.

Babyboomers are sandwiched between taking care of their aging parents and preparing for retirement. Senior citizens are increasing in numbers; benefits are decreasing, while costs are skyrocketing. Attorney Patricia Bloom-McDonald will offer suggestions on how to make the home safe to retire and age in, so that the first domino does not fall, getting injured at home.

Nobody likes the prospect of spending the last years of their life in a nursing home. New laws in Massachusetts now allow those who are “otherwise eligible persons, whose income and resources are insufficient to meet the costs of their medical care as determined by the financial eligibility requirements of the program, to be given the choice of care setting that is the least restrictive and most appropriate to meet his needs.”

Patricia Bloom-McDonald is a licensed attorney in private practice since 2003 (Massachusetts)

She is admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court; U.S. District Court, 1st Circuit; U.S. Bankruptcy Court; and all courts in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

She possesses exceptional knowledge of Probate law and procedure as it is applied to Estate Administration; Elder Law, Guardianships; Conservatorships; adoptions; and name change procedures.

She has outstanding experience with Real Estate procedures relating to loan and refinance documentation, including Reverse Mortgages.

She is able to communicate clearly and concisely with people of diverse backgrounds and levels of authority and available to meet at the client's home, office, or other place of convenience.
