Caring And Advocating For Loved Ones
At Futterman, Lanza & Pasculli, LLP, we devote our law practice to meeting the needs of the elderly, people with special needs and their families. We stand ready to assist your family with every detail.
Caring and advocating for loved ones takes a special level of commitment. Many families do their best but realize the task is beyond their capacity or resources. That is why we are ready to help.
Finding Home Care Services
If you are considering providing or obtaining home care services for your elderly or infirm loved one, there are some important issues to take into consideration. Like nursing home facilities, not every home health care service provider is set up to provide services for people on Medicaid assistance. Costs can be high, particularly for services that are recognized for their high quality. Additionally, household expenses generally increase more than what most families are prepared for.
Meet with a member of our elder law legal team to discuss the level of care you desire for your loved one. As you are probably already aware, an elderly person with dementia will require a different level of care services than an individual with physical disabilities or incapacity. Our firm will explain our services that help your loved one qualify for Medicaid and Medicare benefits, as well as options for obtaining the most appropriate care to meet their needs.
Finding A Nursing Home
Many families realize after a time that they can no longer provide the level of care that is needed for their loved one, despite their best effort and intentions. One of our attorneys will review your circumstances and assist you with finding the right nursing home that meets your family’s needs. If Medicaid assistance is required, we will explain the process and handle the application, which not all elder law attorneys do. This allows you to focus on the care and welfare of your loved one until the placement process is complete.
