When the time comes to take action regarding the future care of an elderly loved one, Lannik Law can help. Because we have more than 20 years of experience, families in Newton and the surrounding area trust us to provide nursing home and long-term care planning services for senior citizens who are no longer able to remain in their own homes unattended.
We will evaluate your loved one's needs and develop a plan designed to ensure that he or she receives the necessary care. When it comes to planning, one of the primary challenges tends to be obtaining government benefits to help offset nursing home and long-term care without putting personal assets at risk. This may require the creation of trusts or the use of other estate planning techniques that we are well versed in.
A Comfortable Future for Your Elderly Loved One
You want a lawyer who has the skill to find and protect the resources necessary to make certain your elderly loved one is comfortable for the rest of his or her life. We take pride in doing just that, taking the weight off your shoulders so you can spend time with your family.
On average, a nursing home or long-term care facility costs $150,000 per year. While that cost may seem overwhelming at first, we are frequently able to find government benefits that cover medical care, physical therapy, special equipment and more. These include Medicaid and Medicare benefits, as well as veterans benefits for veterans and their surviving spouses. By obtaining all available benefits and protecting personal assets, we are able to create a comprehensive nursing home and long-term care plan that is much more reasonable.
