Elder Law and Medicaid

“My wife was just diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. She’s physically healthy, and I want to keep her at home as long as possible. But I need help to do so, and we don’t have enough money to pay for her care for the rest of her life. Will I have to sell our home to pay for her care?”

“My mother just entered the nursing home. At $7,000 or more per month, her funds won’t last long and my sister still lives in the family home. Is there any way to keep the home for my sister?”

“My husband was in the military for a couple of years. He now needs care and is in a local memory assist facility; can the Veterans Administration help with his cost of care?”

The cost of Long Term Care, whether provided at home, in assisted living, or in a nursing home, is high and getting higher. Fortunately, the government has two benefit programs which can help pay the cost. Unfortunately, they have very complicated, and unforgiving, qualification requirements.

Our ability to guide clients through the maze of eligibility and qualification for government benefits for Long Term Care (Medicaid and / or Aid and Attendance) is one of the reasons clients keep coming back to our office and referring their family and friends. We have represented other law firms and business in these matters, and we routinely advise other attorneys, CPAs, and financial advisors on these topics. At The Heritage Law Group, we have over thirty years of experience in designing plans to help our clients acquire assistance with long term care costs.
