Providing Solutions For You and Your Loved Ones


You Do Not Have to Do This Alone 

Medicaid Long Term Care is the only government program that will pay for nursing home care long-term.  Costs for long-term nursing care are increasing at an alarming rate.  As a result, many seniors may not be able to afford to pay privately for care.  We know that Medicaid is complex, and dealing with complex rules while also dealing with day-to-day care can lead to undue stress and illness for family members who may also be acting as caregivers.  We provide help with both advance planning and assisting in crisis situations.  Our team is dedicated to staying up-to-date on the ever-changing Medicaid landscape to the best plan for your specific situation.  We are in contact with a national network of attorneys to make sure the best planning techniques are available to you and that you and your loved ones are protected.


Asset Protection and Estate Preservation 

Many clients come to us knowing that they need help specifically with Medicaid Planning.  We take a comprehensive planning approach with our clients to help create a long-term plan for individuals or married couples who may need care in the future and who wish to preserve their hard-earned assets.  Why wait for a health care crisis to happen, forcing you to scramble to find appropriate care, and to figure out how to pay for that care?  We can help you with a plan that will not only preserve what is important to you, but that will alleviate the financial stress that can overwhelm you or a loved one when long-term care is needed.  

Everyone’s situation is unique.  We will review your specific financial situation and help determine the best approach to develop a plan to protect your estate.  When we are finished helping you, both you and your loved ones will be better prepared for what today holds and what tomorrow may bring.


Crisis Planning- Care Needed Now 

We assist families who are thrown into a crisis because a loved one requires care.  Time is of the essence; however, decisions made in haste may do unintended harm.  The added responsibility can leave family members overwhelmed.  

We can help you and your loved one in a crises by:

  • Evaluating your current asset and income picture to help you make good decisions about care options
  • Reviewing your current long-term care plan to see what assets may be protected
  • Determining the best assistance programs for you to relieve the heavy financial burden
