Heller, P.A. can help.
We have more than 60 years of combined experience when it comes to helping members of the aging population with issues that uniquely or particularly affect them. To the same effect, we can also help families of senior citizens with these issues when they are looking after the welfare of their loved ones.
Our elder law attorney in Winter Park can address key issues affecting senior citizens, such as:
- Long-term care matters, such as mapping out a payment regimen to afford assisted living, a nursing home, or hospice care
- Obtaining and maintaining government benefits such as Medicaid
- Establishing powers of attorney or conservatorships
These are just a few of the most important legal issues that cannot be left unaddressed for senior citizens. Rest assured that we at Richard A. Heller, P.A. will work hard to help you or someone you love get what they need to live out their remaining years in comfort and peace.
Long-term care is one of the things most people don’t consider soon enough. For most people, picturing a time when they’d need a nursing home, assisted living, or hospice care is simply unimaginable; for others, it may just seem too far off in the future to worry about now.
According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, however, Americans who turn 65 have a 70-percent chance of needing some form of long-term care in the future. It’s not inexpensive, either, as some nursing home arrangements can cost $7,000 per month or more.
If you are thinking about your immediate or potential need for long-term care, our elder law attorney in Winter Park can help. We can help you map your finances for the future and determine how much care and at what level you can comfortably afford. If you have a long-term care insurance policy, we can also facilitate your claim and deal with any challenges you may encounter from your insurance provider.
It’s not uncommon for aging seniors to not have enough savings to afford the long-term care they need, but have too much wealth to qualify for Medicaid. We provide the legal advice and services you need to spend down your estate or place your assets into a Medicaid-approved trust so that you can qualify for this important program and afford a nursing home.
