Elder Law & Medicaid Planning
Many people with a home or other assets will need care in a nursing home as they age. The cost of care is very expensive. It can rapidly deplete one's life savings. There are several ways that people can protect assets from being depleted by nursing home expenses. The most advantageous planning should be done at least 5 years before someone is likely to need a nursing home. However, even in a crisis after someone has entered a nursing home, there are steps that can be taken to protect a home and other assets so they can be inherited by children. In addition, having powers of attorney and healthcare powers of attorney can make life much easier for families who are dealing with a nursing home. We are experienced in Elder Law and can provide advice and assistance in planning for nursing home expenses, protecting homes and other assets and qualifying for Medicaid.
