We focus on the areas of the law that are relevant to seniors and their family members. The legal needs of people as they age are unique, and the level of support and services they require are complex.
We help the client decide whether the right level of support is independent living in a retirement community, or long term care under home care, assisted living, memory care or nursing care. The options include long term care services in a private setting and support and services under public health programs.
Concerns arise about asset management for the older client. Will the client qualify for Medicaid? Will assets be depleted to pay for care?
Where necessary, we help the client develop a plan to obtain Medicaid benefits for nursing home care while sheltering those assets allowed by state regulation using different planning options.
