How Can Our Elder Planning Attorneys Help Your Family?
Many families worry that their loved ones will eventually develop dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Not only are these conditions devastating, but they can also drastically increase the cost of caring for your loved one. This is the last thing that your family should have to worry about, which is why elder planning is so important.
Elderly adults with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease may require round-the-clock nursing care. But the truth is that most people cannot afford the monthly cost of senior home care. By planning in advance, families can develop a plan that will help them minimize the out-of-pocket expenses that they incur.
Our attorneys will explore every option, including benefit programs funded by the government, to determine the best way to minimize your out-of-pocket expenses. Then, we will create a plan that addresses how to pay for your elderly loved one’s expenses using Medicaid, veteran’s pension benefits, and the PACE program.
Regardless of whether you’re in the process of planning ahead or you’re currently dealing with the declining health of your loved one, our elder planning attorneys can help you determine the best way to meet your family’s needs.
How Can An Elder Planning Attorney Help With Medicaid Benefits?
Applying for Medicaid benefits can be overwhelming, especially if you’ve never had to do it before. Our legal team has worked with countless families that are embarking on this journey for the very first time, meaning we’re able to help by answering all of your questions and addressing all of your concerns.
First things first: your eligibility must be determined. Our legal team helps you and your loved ones better understand the eligibility requirements for the Medicaid program. Medicaid is a federal program, but it is administered by the state of North Carolina. It’s helpful to have an attorney who is familiar with North Carolina state law since some of the regulations may vary from state-to-state.
Starting this planning process as early as possible is important because it can reduce your future out-of-pocket expenses. Our knowledgeable estate planning team will learn more about your unique situation to develop an effective care plan for your loved ones.
What Benefits Are Available to Veterans in North Carolina?
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs provides monthly benefits to veterans who meet certain eligibility requirements. Many military families have no clue about these benefits, so they don’t take advantage of them when they need them the most. Furthermore, some families know about these benefits, but have been told by the Department of Veterans Affairs they don’t qualify. If you are in this situation, our attorneys may be able to implement asset protection techniques that will help you meet the specific requirements so you can qualify for these benefits.
It’s unfortunate that families often have to jump through hoops in order to obtain veterans’ benefits, but don’t let this challenge stop you from taking advantage of this program. With our help, your family can secure the veterans’ benefits you need to care for your elderly loved ones.
