Medicaid Planning

Just a few years of nursing home care can destroy a lifetime of prudent financial decisions, fully consuming family assets and leaving family members with nothing. Although this can be disappointing to children losing an expected inheritance, it can be truly devastating to a spouse, left to live on limited assets while pouring funds into nursing home care.

With advanced Medicaid planning, you may be able to limit the disastrous financial effects of nursing home care.
