The Elder Law practice combines elements of estate planning, wills, healthcare planning including Medicaid/Medical Assistance, long-term insurance policy issues and asset protection in the event of a possible future placement in a nursing home.  I draft various types of documents including Life Estate Deeds, Powers of Attorney, Living Wills, Advance Medical Directives in order to delegate legal authority and management to another in case of incompetency or incapacity.

As part of this representation I explain asset protection and the Medical Assistance process with the client and their family. I review your assets and place in writing my specific recommendations for you to make a decision. This planning should be done well in advance of any nursing home placement and is best done when one is in good health.  I also work with emergency placements when a loved one is suddenly hospitalized and then needs immediate placement into a nursing home when they are unable to return to their home.  I organize the assets with the family and will walk you through the Medical Assistance application so that the costly nursing home expenses can be covered for your loved one.
