When people visit an elder law attorney, they often have concerns about how they will handle the financial issues related to aging and what they can leave behind for their loved ones. Making a solid plan for managing your estate means that your wishes are more likely to be carried out in a timely fashion and that your loved ones will receive the maximum benefit from the assets you’ve worked for all your life.
How Will I Pay for Long-Term Care?
Nearly everyone is aware of the high cost of long-term care. Nursing home care can cost thousands of dollars a month, and those whose income is too high or who have significant savings may lose a lot of their wealth before they are eligible for assistance from Medicaid. An elder law attorney can discuss these issues with you and can offer you recommendations about how you can keep more of your assets even when long-term care is needed.
At What Age Should I Call an Elder Law Attorney?
It is never really too early to consult with an elder law attorney. Although younger people or married couples may not yet have the full picture of what kind of assets they will have accumulated by the time they are ready to plan their estate, it is still wise to consider how these assets can be protected for children when they are grown. Acquiring knowledge about available financial options early on makes planning easier as people age.
