Nursing Homes: How to Pay for One Without Going Broke and How to Find The Right One for Your Loved One

If your spouse or loved one can no longer live at home safely, you may have no choice but to place them in some sort of communal living. This can actually be of benefit to the elder who may benefit from the socialization and the hands on care.

But what about the cost of a Nursing Home?  Every day people in Broward and Palm Beach Counties go broke paying for this care.  Sometimes they must even sell the family home and spend it down.  This is because they have been told that they must be out of money before they can get any government help.

We know better. You would not ask the Internal Revenue Service to do your tax returns, would you? They know all the deductions but will they tell you? Should a nursing home be an expert in qualifying for Medicaid or Veteran’s benefits?  If they are, are they spending their time caring for your loved one?

This is where I come in.  I am a board certified Elder Law Attorney.  It’s my job to know all of the Medicaid and Veteran’s benefits rules in both state and federal law.  I protect my clients from being unnecessarily impoverished, legally and honestly.

In my free Consumer Guide For Medicaid, Veteran’s Benefits And Asset Protection For Long Term Care Needs Planning, you’ll find plain-English explanations of what the dangers are and what you can do to avoid the hidden pitfalls that await you if you’re walking blind.  Request your copy now, so you can protect yourself, your legacy, and your dignity.

  • An overview of Medicaid and Veteran’s benefits
  • How to prevent your loved one from becoming “ineligible”
  • How a family member can be legally paid to care for a loved one at home
  • How to provide for a disabled child without interfering with Medicaid benefits.

  • And much, much, more

The rules of Medicaid and Veteran’s benefits are nearly impossible for the layperson to understand. In fact, most likely, your family attorney will say things like, “It’s too late to do anything!” – or just shrug his shoulders and offer you the same old will and power of attorney that he prepares for his healthy clients.

We know more solutions. We help people like you deal with the mind-boggling, complex maze of Medicaid and Veteran’s benefits paperwork and the frustration that accompanies it. We know where the landmines are placed along the Elder Care Journey.

As a client of our firm, we are able to help you identify the best possible accommodations, whether Assisted Living, memory care, in-home, or a Nursing Home.
