Elder Law is a specialty to work with the legal needs of our senior citizens. As we grow older we experience many different decisions than when we were younger. From housing and retirement to medical, disability, or long-term care, Elder Law encompasses many areas of law.
Many of our elderly citizens are afraid they will lose their home, savings, and everything they have worked so hard for throughout their life if they need long-term care or nursing home care.
They don’t want to be a burden on their children, family, or society.

It’s never too soon to start planning for Medicaid or long-term care, especially when a spouse or parent may need nursing home care. Unfortunately, many people have yet to plan for long-term care or are misinformed about how Medicaid actually works. Many families are unaware who is eligible and how a Nursing Home Medicaid Plan can benefit their family.
There are a few key things to remember when it comes to Medicaid. It’s almost never too late to plan. Your family or spouse can still receive Medicaid assistance even after a loved one has moved to a nursing home.
It’s important to apply in a timely manner. Applying too early or too late may result in longer periods of ineligibility, which can lead to many months of additional out-of-pocket expenses.
It’s also important to recognize legal protections for the spouse and family of a nursing home resident. Many times, families are afraid they will lose their home, savings, and personal property if their spouse or loved one has to move to a nursing home.
Numerous financial safeguards are available for elderly people and couples without jeopardizing Medicaid eligibility.
Brent has helped hundreds of families throughout our community save thousands of dollars with effective Nursing Home Medicaid Planning. Call him today at 816-233-0257 for your free, no obligation consultation.
