Elder Needs Law Services In Plantation, Florida
While resident health is the priority of Wilton Manors Rehab, ours is ensuring that your loved one's estate plan and/or medicaid planning is robust enough to maintain them in the closing years of their life. A lot goes into planning this. Fortunately, we are a full-service estate planning law firm.
Elder law encompasses several legal areas, including:
- Retirement funds
- Medicaid planning
- Nursing home abuse and negligence
- Estate planning
Other Areas of Estate Planning
Elder Needs Law offers help with many aspects of estate planning, such as:
Medicare only covers 100 days of rehabilitation or nursing home care after a three-day hospital stay. If you meet this requirement, Medicare will cover your long-term care expenses for the first 20 days.
However, beyond that, there is an 80-day deductible of $194.50 per day (in 2023).
Working with an elder law attorney with extensive experience in Medicaid planning is crucial because Medicare does not pay for long-term care or nursing homes for longer than 100 days.
Good nursing home care usually is costly and requires planning from your loved ones.
In Florida, applicants must meet specific standards to qualify for Medicaid, including:
- Florida residence
- US citizenship or legal resident alien
- An income of less than $2,742.00 per month as of January 2023
- Less than $2,000 of combined assets
- A needs test
A good Florida Medicaid planning attorney can help with this application without having to deplete your personal assets. We will walk you through the process.
Making sure your loved ones make decisions when they are in a position to understand the consequences of their choices is a component of prudent estate planning and asset management.
You should speak to us about guardianship proceedings to name someone to represent your loved one's interests if they cannot make vital decisions. We can help to minimize instances of financial elder abuse by empowering another person with decision-making rights.
