Knowledgeable Elder Law and Medicaid Lawyers Assist Clients in NJ, PA & FL
In life, there are many things that are out of our control; aging is certainly one of them. However, just because you can’t halt the hands of time doesn’t mean you can’t prepare for the unexpected to ensure the best quality of life.
Further, proper long-term care planning, with the guidance of an experienced elder law and Medicaid attorney at Rothamel Bratton, will help minimize financial concerns and allow you to focus on the business of living.
Common Elder Care Issues Worth Your Consideration
Asset Protection – Protect your assets from medical and long-term care costs by considering trusts, re-titling of assets, gifting, insurance and estate planning. We can explain how these tools can help you.
Guardianships and Conservatorship – If you become incapacitated and can’t manage your financial or health needs, the court-ordered remedies of guardianship and conservation can protect your assets and insure that someone is there to help you with your health needs. A durable power of attorney may also be an option. We’ll review these remedies and guide you to the most appropriate one for your situation.
Medicaid – The high expense of long-term care can put most families in debt. We’ll help you plan for the expense of long term care and we’ll explain to you what Medicaid will expect from you financially.
SSDI/SSI – If you’ve become disabled for any reason, you may be entitled to SSDI (Social Security Disability Income) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income) benefits. We’ll help you process your claim so you reap the full benefits of these programs.
Additionally, we invite you to examine our planning checklist for a quick review of what you need to do to prepare to manage your short term and long-term elderly needs.
