How Can Rochester Law Center Help Me With
Elder Care Planning?
Planning For Long-Term Care Costs
Long-Term Care can be very expensive. According to seniorliving.org the average annual cost of nursing home care in Michigan is $109,500. But, our Elder Law Lawyers can help you plan strategically to pay for the care you or a loved one may need while minimizing the impact on your life savings.
Advanced Planning For Long-Term Care
Often times it’s best to plan for Long-Term Care before you need it. An unexpected injury, accident, or illness can change your needs, sometimes immediately. Planning for Long-Term Care in advance gives you time to learn about potential services and the associated costs. It also allows you to make important decisions for you and your family while you’re still able.
Emergency Medicaid Planning For Long-Term Care
Sometimes life presents us with unforeseen circumstances that need to be addressed immediately. Like we stated before, nursing home stays in Michigan can be incredibly expensive. Medicare doesn’t pay for extensive stays in a nursing home and often times people are denied Medicaid because they have too many assets. The laws around Medicaid are complicated, but our Elder Law Lawyers can help you plan or qualify for Medicaid while minimizing the impact on your savings.
Providing Legal Counsel For Caregivers
As our parents begin to age, it’s not uncommon to find ourselves assuming new roles. Managing their financial situations and making sure they receive the proper medical and long-term care – it can all seem overwhelming. Trying to figure out Medicaid Planning, Nursing Home Planning, and Estate Planning – where do you find the time to plan while still finding the time to live your life? Don’t worry, we can help guide you through the planning process.
Preserving and Passing On Your Legacy Through
When we refer to “Estate Planning”, we’re talking about the process of transferring your money, property, and assets to your loved ones after you’re gone – in the most efficient way possible. It also includes planning for what might happen to you while you’re still alive, for example, if you become extremely ill and need someone to care for you. It’s important to remember that Estate Planning is about much more than just signing documents. It’s about designing and implementing a personalized plan, in the simplest way possible, to protect your family and loved ones from devastating court battles and financial hardships that can occur after you pass.
