Long-Term Care Planning
While most people don’t like to think about getting older, waiting to plan for elder care can limit your options when it comes to lifestyle, budget and wellbeing. Your need for long-term care could impact the financial viability of your spouse. Or you may wonder whether a parent’s assets will outlast their long-term care needs.
For the cost of just one or two months’ of nursing home care, a TuckerAllen attorney can provide peace of mind by helping you put in place a long-term care planning strategy based on your needs and wishes.
How Will You Pay for Your Long-Term or Nursing Home Care?
Start by asking yourself these questions:
- If needed, do you want in-home care or nursing home care?
- Can you afford in-home care?
- Can you afford the nursing home of your choosing?
- Is having a private room important to you?
- How can you save for future care?
- How can you qualify for government benefits such as Medicaid?
- How do you protect your assets for your surviving spouse and family?
The Earlier You Plan, the Better Your Options
Legally and emotionally, long-term care planning is a complex issue. Long-term care insurance can be expensive, and policies can be confusing. There are also strict laws associated with Medicaid qualification, including income limits and wealth transfer laws that could exclude you from benefits.
Working with a TuckerAllen elder law attorney experienced in nursing home planning enables you choose the right type of planning for your specific situation. In the maze of confusion, there is a solution.
