Seniors and older adults face unique issues. Elder Law and Medicaid planning provide tools to let you age with dignity.
Our legal team understands how to protect complicated and high-net-worth estates from rising nursing home costs.
There are options to protect your hard-earned money during your golden years. You should be able to live out your life in dignity. You should not be forced to be destitute simply to pay for a nursing home or in-home care.
It may be because of health issues or other reasons. This can be scary for you and your family. If you don’t plan ahead, it can be challenging for your family to know what to do.
Elder Law and long-term care planning put you in the driver’s seat, so you control what happens in the future. That means your wishes will be followed even if you can’t make decisions for yourself.
With proper planning, you can prepare for future long-term care needs, protect your money and property, and make decisions about the end of your life.
As we age, our health needs increase. Often the time comes when nursing home care becomes necessary for our loved ones.
Long-term care is expensive and often unaffordable without the help that Medicaid provides.
In Florida, Medicaid covers a number of needs for seniors, including care in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, home health care, and day programs.
Getting qualified for Medicaid in Florida is extremely difficult, and even simple errors can result in a denial of benefits costing tens of thousands of dollars. This can be devastating to families.
By engaging in Medicaid planning, many families can avoid the stress and emotional toll that paying for long-term care takes on a family. In fact, many assets can be saved and protected if proper planning is done in advance.
The short answer is no.
However, Medicaid policy is complex and mistakes are common and costly. Even so, there are tools and legal options that provide opportunities to transfer or spend your assets in ways that benefit you and your family and still qualify for Medicaid.
Any steps to spend or transfer assets should be done under the direction of an experienced attorney.
Medicaid policy is very strict and any mistake could result in a denial of benefits and expensive penalties. With smart planning and help from our team, we have helped many seniors protect at least part of their savings to pass along to future generations.
Being proactive and planning before you need care produces the best results. Often, families can often protect their homes and investments from expensive nursing home and long-term care costs.
Since some planning options may be better for your family than others, it’s important to work with an attorney who will take the time to learn about you and your goals.
