Lawyers For Long-Term Care Issues
Our experienced attorneys understand the often complicated nature of public benefits eligibility. Through our representation, a client can secure a plan that leads to appropriate levels of home care or admission to preferred nursing home facilities.
We provide compassionate, creative legal options for long-term home care that consider the entire family’s perspective. It is our goal to provide a legal approach that will unify families faced with tough decisions regarding the long-term care of loved ones.
Customized Plans As Unique As Your Family
A customized plan serves as a guide for each client and identifies steps designed to address present and future issues. Because no two families are alike, we tailor each case to meet the individual needs of our clients. This includes a thorough assessment of finances to determine eligibility for Medicaid, which is often used to pay for home health services for those who qualify.
It is not uncommon for clients to be concerned about eligibility for entitlement programs. Often, clients are surprised to learn that New York has no look-back period for recently transferred assets when determining eligibility for home care. Additionally, just prior to nursing home admission, gifting or asset preservation can still be accomplished.
It is not always easy for a client to address long-term issues involving a loved one. We understand and strive to make the legal process less difficult for our clients. Our boutique law firm provides the personal level of client services needed during troubled family times.
