Stay Financially Independent

Staying financially independent in the face of disabling medical issues is of the utmost importance. Not only for you and your family financially, but there are quality-of-life implications. An elder law plan can map out how you cover the cost of necessary care. With that issue resolved, you will be in a much better position to make your own decisions about your day-to-day life. The elder law plan can prevent you from having to deplete your life savings, file for bankruptcy, or sell your assets. You don’t have to go broke in a nursing home!

Benefits of an Elder Law Plan

An elder law plan offers many benefits. In addition to allowing one to stay financially independent, it offers a variety of financial and quality of life advantages. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Save money, even when staying in a nursing home
  • Avoid common Care Investment mistakes
  • Legally and safely hire a family member for personal at-home care
  • Provide for a disabled son, daughter or grandchild
  • Get the care you need and still pass on your Legacy!

Elder Law Strategies for Alzheimer’s Patients and Families

In most cases the challenge of facing an Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis is just as traumatizing for family members as it is for the patient. There are many issues that must be considered and dealt with in the aftermath of such a diagnosis. There are the financial issues as well as quality of life issues. How do you pay for care? How do you preserve your Legacy, your estate? How do you stay as independent as possible? Can your family caretakers receive compensation for taking care of you?

These are all questions we can help you answer and develop an elder law strategy to help you and your family as you battle Alzheimer’s disease.

Elder Law Strategies for Dementia Sufferers

If you or a loved one suffers from Dementia, it is equally important to develop an elder law plan or strategy. There are many similarities to how you will plan for Alzheimer’s disease. Staying financially independent and staying with your family are all major concerns. Once it is determined that long-term care is required, an elder law plan can start the process immediately of getting the funds need to pay for the care and the process by which the care if given.

An elder law strategy puts you in the driver’s seat when it comes to getting the necessary care, paying for the necessary care and the quality of your day-to-day life.
