Legal Solutions For Long-Term Care
The cost of long-term care is a financial burden many families cannot bear. As nursing home costs continue to rise, a lifetime of savings can vanish in a matter of mere months. With skilled legal planning, however, it is often possible to preserve assets while maintaining eligibility for Medicaid and other assistance programs.

Addressing Medicaid Eligibility Concerns
Many seniors rely on Medicaid to pay for long-term care, but those with even a few assets may not meet eligibility requirements. With the skilled use of trusts and other estate planning instruments, it is often possible to spare assets from the enormous cost of long-term care.
You must tread carefully, however, as strict look-back periods and transfer penalties apply. This is why it is important to have an experienced elder law attorney helping you with the Medicaid and long-term care planning process. We can guide you through all aspects of this process, so you can preserve assets to the maximum extent allowed under the law.
