Don't wait until you need nursing home care to create a plan to protect your assets. The average cost of nursing home care continues to rise, and you can exhaust your life savings before you become eligible for Medicaid. It is best to create a plan early, so you can pass your assets to your loved ones.
If you or a loved one need nursing home care but do not have a plan to protect your assets, you still have options. Many people think that you have to spend down almost all of your assets to become eligible for Medicaid. You don't have to do that. Come see me so that we can work out a plan to save as much of those assets as possible.
Medicaid will provide you with all the forms you need and information that it needs to apply for Medicaid coverage. You can do it yourself without the expense of a lawyer. However, if you would rather an attorney handle it for you, I will gather the information, file the forms, and complete the process for you.
I can help you establish guardianship for a loved one who is unable to make decisions for themselves.
Nursing home residents are among the most vulnerable members of our society. I am an advocate for residents suffering from abuse, neglect, or misappropriation. Additionally, nursing homes can only transfer or evict a resident for a few reasons and must follow the proper procedures. If any of these things occur, come talk to me.
