Elder Care Law: Long-Term Care Planning

Preparing for the future as you or a loved one advances in age should include careful planning for long-term care. While no one wants to think about needing nursing home care for themselves or an older family member, good planning strategies are necessary to protect your assets and ensure you receive the quality of care you deserve in your later years.

While many think that Medicare or long-term care coverage will take care of everything, the fact is that Medicare only pays for short-term nursing home care, and even long-term care insurance doesn’t cover every expense. Long-term care costs can easily top $90K a year in Georgia – enough to decimate even the most careful savers’ finances quickly.

Speights Law can help you assess your options and handle all your long-term care and estate planning needs. We can help you prepare wills and advance health care directives, establish trusts to protect assets, and advise you on Medicaid planning options should you need to qualify for government benefits.

Our elder law attorneys can also help you weigh the benefits of long-term care insurance plans and incorporate them into your estate planning process. Don’t leave your future, your finances, and your family’s well-being to chance – call and talk to us today.
