The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, Helps Family Caregivers Determine If And When Their Loved Ones Require Assisted Living.
The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, offers a list of questions that help caregivers know when it may be time to consider placing their loved one in assisted living.
DECATUR, GA, August ••, 2023: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “When Is It Time To Consider Placing A Loved One into Assisted Living,” in which Ms. Pawley provides a list of questions caregivers can explore to determine whether or not the time is right.
Pawley writes, “Most people I’ve explored the subject with – I include myself too – would love to stay in the comfort of our own homes as we age and pass on to the next life. We would love to be surrounded by loved ones and we would like our passing to be pleasant while not being a burden on our family and loved ones. But, of course,” she adds, “not even one of us knows for certain how our lives will unfold. We tend to put plans in place that account for the worst-case scenarios and then hope for and expect the very best.”
“As more and more people are living longer,” Pawley emphasizes, “many of us are faced with caregiving for our elderly parents and loved ones.” She continues, “Very often, the decline in physical and mental capacities challenges even the most loving and willing family members who take on the role of caregivers. There may come a time when the benefits no longer outweigh the toll taken on the caregiver as well as the elderly loved one.”

In our firm, WE BELIEVE that people should not have to lose everything they’ve worked a lifetime to earn and that every person is an individual who deserves respect and the highest quality of life possible, regardless of age or ability. We also believe that privacy and protection are the keys to personal peace. Born and raised in the Tidewater area of Virginia to a tightknit family with strong military service roots, Shannon learned from an early age the value of hard work and the importance of social awareness to ensure you always leave a situation in a better place than how you entered it. In her junior year of high school, Shannon served as U.S. House of Representatives Page during the 101st United States Congressional Session in Washington, D.C. This experience exposed her to numerous new cultures and worldly issues. Walking away from her experience as a U.S. House of Representative Page, Shannon knew that she wanted to pursue legal studies and be able to assist others in obtaining the best results available in difficult situations.
Shannon earned her undergraduate degree at North Carolina Wesleyan College and pursued a law degree from Michigan State University College of Law. After obtaining her law degree and becoming a licensed attorney in Michigan, she continued her educational pursuit by acquiring a LL.M. (Master of Law) in Taxation from Wayne State University. After moving to Georgia in 2018, Shannon obtained her Georgia law license and has enjoyed being able to pursue her desire of ensuring persons are able to age with dignity, grace and independence.
