Estate Planning With Long-Term Care in Mind
Much goes into creating a long-term care plan for someone you love. You must consider the type of care important to you, the best facilities, and, most importantly, the costs. Care options aren’t getting any cheaper, and if you’re not careful, you will have depleted your retirement savings and other assets before long.
Our estate planning team can help you create a plan that allows your loved one to live comfortably and maximize benefits, all while keeping more money in their pockets.
Here are a few legal services we provide to support you.
Long-term care patients often rack up thousands of dollars in bills, even with Medicare coverage. Medicare only pays for the first 20 days of your stay. The next 80 days will require a co-pay, and then you’re on your own.
Alternatively, you can apply for Medicaid, but you may quickly learn that owning assets can eliminate your ability to qualify. Our Medicaid planning lawyers will work with you to implement strategies that shelter your assets from consideration and help you qualify for coverage.
Guardianship is the legal authority to act on behalf of an individual who can’t do so themselves. This status is granted by the courts and is our last resort for helping you make important decisions regarding your loved one’s health and finances. Our guardianship attorneys can work with the courts to help you gain this status and finally put your mind at ease.
It’s never too early to start your estate plans. Don’t keep putting it off. The fact is when your loved one passes away, anything they owned—a house, bank account, a car—will need to be split up according to their wishes.
But if they didn’t leave behind a detailed plan for those assets, Florida probate courts make those decisions for them, and the last thing you want is the courts choosing what’s best for your family. Let us help you put an estate plan in place.
