assisted living, a nursing home, or hospice care

powers of attorney or conservatorships
These are just a few of the most important legal issues that cannot be

Helping Clients Get the Long-Term Care They Need
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.
