PROTECTING THE LEGAL RIGHTS OF THE ELDERLY

PROTECTING THE LEGAL RIGHTS OF THE ELDERLY

 

We realize that everyone's needs are different. That is why our attorneys work with you to develop a long-term plan to

protect your future, and that of your loved ones. Whether you need assistance with guardianship, VA pension or

Medicaid planning, we are here to help.

VA BENEFITS PLANNING

If you were honorably discharged and served at least one day during a period of wartime, and if you are living in an assisted living facility, you may qualify for benefits under the Veteran's Administration Aid and Attendance Program. There are plenty of special advantages for war veterans and their surviving spouses. These benefits can help pay for long-term care medical expenses and provide claimants with cash payments to use, as they desire, to improve their quality of life.

MEDICAID BENEFITS PLANNING

For your Medicaid to be effective, you need to plan a few years in advance. The government looks back 5 years at your assets. If you made any transfer of your assets, it could be used as a countable income that could be used for nursing home care. By careful planning with our attorneys, they can help you understand and prepare for your future with Medicaid.

GUARDIANSHIP (ADULT)

The decision to pursue guardianship of a loved one may be one of the toughest decisions you will ever make. But once you have decided it is the right path, it is important to complete the process as economically and efficiently as possible. Attorney Ashley Day understands the guardianship process and will guide you through. Together, you can select the guardianship option that is best for you and your loved one, and move forward with confidence. Visit our Special Needs Resource page to learn more about Guardianship.
