Planning For Peace Of Mind

With average monthly expenses for nursing home care exceeding $7,000 a month — it does not take a math genius to infer that the average person cannot support this kind of payment over a long period of time. What you may not know is that elder law addresses exactly these types of concerns and that with proper planning, you can have peace of mind and the care you need without surrendering everything you own to the government.

Elder law concerns are an important part of our estate planning practice at Frese, Whitehead, Anderson & Henderson, P.A. Some of the elder law issues our lawyers can assist you with include:

  • Asset protection planning
  • Medicaid planning
  • Purchasing long-term health insurance
  • Using trusts and annuities to reallocate or preserve assets
  • Real property transfers
  • Gifts and charitable contributions
  • Guardianships
  • Fiduciary management of the property of minors

Preserving Medicaid Eligibility And Your Assets At The Same Time

National statistics indicate that at least 1 out of 4 persons aged 65 to 80 will need nursing home attention during his or her lifetime. With that statistic in mind, the question that has to be asked is: “Who pays?”

Unfortunately, unless you have planned ahead the answer to that question is you — and more to the point, your spouse or the beneficiaries you had planned to leave your assets to. Although the details of asset protection and Medicaid eligibility are too complex to explain here, we do want to stress the benefits of consulting with an attorney about these matters as early as possible and would welcome the opportunity to help.

To Our Valuable Clients:

The federal government has recently enacted legislation to assist citizens and businesses facing uncertain financial challenges due to COVID-19. We are here to help answer questions and guide you through the details of the various processes to procure financial assistance from our government. The acts are very new and more will probably be coming. But they currently provide for dollar for dollar tax credits for payroll for COVID19 related payroll, cash advances and loans that have tremendously favorable terms and in some cases, total forgiveness of the debt.

Please stay as safe as possible during this terrible crisis and if we can help you with questions about the new federal assistance laws, please contact us.
