It’s possible that you or a loved one may need nursing home care in the future. If you’re like most people, you may be worried about how to pay for the cost of a long-term care facility. Many people with limited financial resources have to rely on Medicaid to help them pay for long-term care. 


The purpose of Medicaid planning is to preserve your assets by making informed financial decisions so that you or your loved one can rest assured they will be cared for. Our goal is to take advantage of all available resources to lesson the financial burden of long-term care.


Our elder law attorneys will meet with you and/or your family to determine what kind of care is required for their loved one and whether the person is able to stay at home or will need long-term care in a nursing home. Then we will assist you in evaluating your options, including taking advantage of Medicaid benefits. We can also help you understand the eligibility requirements and then assist you with the Medicaid application process.
