At The Law Offices of Jaworski & Giacobbe, we meet with clients and help them create a plan for their future; many of these plans include planning for long-term care. We combine our experience and knowledge to reach your goals, while also achieving peace of mind for you and your loved ones. Planning ahead is always recommended, as there are more opportunities available when not in a time constraint. However, even at the last minute, there are almost always steps available to preserve some of your assets.
For most seniors, obtaining Medicaid to pay for nursing home care or in-home care is a necessity. Medicaid is a joint federal and state program that covers nursing home costs for people who meet both the financial and health eligibility requirements. The rules of this program provide many opportunities for those receiving care, whether in a nursing home or in-home, to preserve assets for themselves, their spouses, children and grandchildren.
We can also assist in nursing home or in-home placements and advise you of your, or your loved ones, rights while in the nursing home. Should any obstacles arise during the process, we will be there to work with you to find a resolution. There are several Medicaid planning techniques that can work for you in New York state, but the results can vary county by county. Because Medicaid rules vary so much, it is important to work with a trusted lawyer that is familiar with the entire process.
It can be extremely overwhelming to look at the cost of long-term care in New York. At The Law Offices of Jaworski & Giacobbe, we understand the challenges you face, and we are here to guide you through them. We will carefully review all of your options and give you the information you need today so that you feel prepared for whatever comes tomorrow.
