Be Prepared with Elder Law and Long Term Care Planning

During your first consultation, a well-trained Certified Elder Law Attorney will advise you regarding your unique circumstances. After extensive evaluation of your situation, our experienced attorneys will be able to offer suggestions and solutions and propose steps you should take to achieve your goals.

Planning for Long Term Care

An important aspect of elder law is planning for long-term care. We can advise you and your family on all aspects of long-term care, including strategies to become eligible for government benefits while preserving some assets.

  • Should the need arise for long-term care, it can be costly. Medicare does not cover long-term stays in nursing facilities.
  • Approximately 1 in 3 people turning 65 will need care at a skilled nursing facility at some point in their lives.
  • Medicaid can offer a solution; 6 in 10 nursing home residents are covered by Medicaid.
  • It is important to plan ahead and transfer needed assets early to avoid the five year "look-back" period.
