Your loved one deserves the best care possible but deciding what type of care that is is a thought that can keep you up at night.
We know that choosing to place your loved one in a nursing home or care facility is one of the toughest decisions you’ll make—one that can weigh heavily on your heart. It’s okay to feel this way. It’s okay to feel scared or anxious about what will become of your loved one and whether or not they’ll be well taken care of.

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, before long, you will have depleted your retirement savings and other assets.
Our estate planning team at Elder Needs Law PLLC 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. The thing is, Medicare will only pay for the first 20 days of your stay. The next 80 days will require a co-pay, and then after that, 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, but it can become too late. 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.
