protect the ones you love
Nelson Elder Care Law
Did you work all of your life and save your money to give it to a nursing home or the state? Of course not!
Many of us worked hard all of our lives to take care of our family and build a nest egg for a comfortable, but not lavish, retirement. However, frequently as we age, it is not uncommon for a serious illness or injury to occur.
When this happens, is when most people discover that Medicare doesn’t cover the care they need. It is shocking. To have someone come into your home to help care for you costs about $25 per hour. If you need to move to an assisted living community, those typically start at $3000 per month. The one place that none of us wants to go is the nursing home and that is the most expensive at $8000 per month. At these rates, you can see how you could spend your life savings very quickly.
There are steps that you can take to protect your life savings and qualify for benefits to help you pay for care. However, it is virtually impossible to figure it all out on your own. It is a tangled web of state and federal laws, regulations, previous court decisions, and the Social Security Programs Operations Manual. This is the type of work that you need to focus on every day to develop the required expertise. Even most lawyers don’t know how to navigate through these complexities to protect your life savings.
At Nelson Elder Care Law, we are experts on these complex laws and how to get you qualified for the maximum benefit that you are eligible to receive, while at the same time, helping you to avoid going broke in the process.
Planning in advance is the best way to protect your assets. But, if you haven’t planned yet, it is probably not too late. Don’t spend another penny on care without talking to us. We can guide you so you can protect what you have worked so hard to save.
If a loved one has already passed without planning and now you are facing the lengthy and expensive court process called Probate. We can guide you through that as well, helping you to minimize family feuds and distribute the assets appropriately without subjecting yourself to legal liability.
Every one of us has curve balls in our life. We never know when one is going to strike. Please take some time and review our website. Call us with any questions or concerns that you may have or just to check us out.
