A Conversation With Cleveland Elder Law Attorneys and Senior Relocation Specialists


On March 3, 2021, McGregor was delighted to host a virtual event with Hickman & Lowder Co. L.P.A., a Cleveland law firm that specializes in elder law, and Caring Transitions, a company that specializes in relocation services for seniors.

We were fortunate to have David S. Banas and Janelle Leonard from the law firm and Karen Ramba from Caring Transitions join us to discuss topics of particular importance to seniors and their caregivers, including the following:


Estate Planning

Dave from Hickman & Lowder Co. L.P.A. discussed what estate planning is and the necessity of having conversations with family members early and often. Hear from Dave on the difference between pre-planning and crisis planning and how to best secure your future and your wishes.


Senior Living Facilities

The McGregor team outlined the various care needs that seniors have and how to choose the right living option for you or your loved one. Tune in to learn how McGregor can help residents with moving and downsizing.


COVID-19 and Senior Care

The McGregor team discussed the impact of COVID-19 on operations—including social distancing and Zoom tours—as well as outlined the policies and protocols designed to keep residents and staff members safe.


Communication and Transparency

Janelle from Hickman & Lowder Co. L.P.A. provided expert guidance on how families can best communicate as they determine a loved one’s aging plan. She offered tips for care conferences, point persons, and organization of information.

We invite you to watch the full event below and encourage you to reach out to Hickman & Lowder Co. L.P.A. if your family needs help navigating the complexities around elder law, care advocacy, estate planning, and other issues that affect seniors. And you can contact Caring Transitions for assistance with relocating a loved one, downsizing, and estate sales.
