There are myriad legal strategies you might consider implementing as you design your estate plan.
Our firm focuses on the many different areas of elder law. We solve and help you navigate the complex issues families face when a loved one needs long term care or they need to plan for a disabled family member. Medicaid planning properly performed can protect assets from the costs of long term care, provide assets to help pay for care in order to enhance the quality of life of the person who can no longer take care of themselves. Numerous planning options exist and depend on the facts of every situation when facing a long term care crisis in a nursing home. We can design a plan for your family, whether you are proactively planning years in advance of needing long term care, or even if you have a loved one who needs care immediately. Our planning can leverage Medicaid for nursing home care and VA Aid & Attendance benefits for home or assisted living care. We also design special needs plans for disabled children and adults, or their families, to provide for them in the future without jeopardizing current or future Medicaid and other health benefits they may be entitled to.
