What son or daughter hasn’t worried about their loved one running out of money while in a nursing home…particularly if their loved one has Alzheimer’s? If you have a senior parent with mental health issues who’s in a nursing home, and you haven’t thought about it…you’re a very lucky person!
If your loved one does run out of money in this situation, it can create a crisis situation – for you. And that’s why this is an issue that should be resolved before your parent enters a nursing home. You need to ask this question – “What if my mother/father runs out of money?” – before you pick a center. (And if you don’t need to ask the question…again, you’re a very lucky person!)
Most nursing homes in South Florida accept Medicaid. But assisted Living Facilities are not funded by Medicaid. So you have to check this out. You don’t want to have to move your loved one to a second home if possible.
It would be a very stressful experience for the whole family, as well. And that’s why it’s important for your family to have an experienced guide lead the way.
At The Law Offices of Alice Reiter Feld & Associates, we’ve been guiding South Florida families through this process for 33 years. And we’ve helped thousands of them…not only with nursing home issues, but also with estate planning, wills, trusts, powers of attorney, asset protection, long-term care planning, Medicaid, and the VA.
We practice Elder Law – and only Elder Law. And we can be your guide through the long and winding road of the Elder Care Journey.
We’re here when you need us. And we’re just a phone call away.
