What is elder law? It is the area of law focused on helping seniors with their changing needs as they age. This can include planning for long-term care, addressing nursing home abuse, or helping with guardianship / conservatorship needs.
If you or a loved one needs care now, whether in a nursing home, an assisted living facility, or needs assistance to remain at home, you should contact our firm immediately. Long-term care is extremely expensive. Your life savings or your loved one’s life savings can easily be spent on long-term care in a short period of time.
Plan for your long-term care with our elder law services.
Our law practice helps you plan for life care and skilled nursing services. We can help you determine whether you can qualify for Medicaid benefits and whether we can help you protect your assets from long-term care costs. Medicare does not cover extended long-term care nursing home costs. However, Medicaid is a government program that will pay for nursing home care if you qualify. The rules regarding eligibility are complex and rigid. If you make a mistake, it can be costly. Having an experienced team help with your long-term care application is paramount. Our Medicaid Application Specialist, Darcia Tremblay has over 12 years experience assisting clients with Medicaid applications.
Don’t think that it is too late to plan for long-term care.
With long-term care planning, you will have more options the earlier that you plan. However, legal and financial strategies are available even for those already receiving long-term care services.
Some people believe that they have too much income or too many assets to qualify for Medicaid. However, our law practice uses elder law strategies that can help protect your assets for your loved ones and ensure that you qualify for Medicaid benefits as soon as possible.
It’s best to put a plan in place before you need long-term care. We offer elder law services that allow you to plan while you are still healthy, so you can have peace of mind and know that if you need long-term care at some point, your life savings will be protected and your family will have the legal tools that they need to carry out your wishes.
However, if the need for long-term care is on the horizon or if you are already receiving long-term care services, there are still elder law strategies that we can implement to help you protect your assets. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can help you.
