Bartow, FL Nursing Home Planning
As you enter the later stages of your life, you may find that you have more difficulty with your daily activities, or you may simply no longer want the responsibility of managing a household. Whatever your reasons for entering a nursing home, you'll need to ensure you go through the proper planning process to protect your assets and ensure your wishes are carried out as you would like.
Here at Family Elder Law, we work with seniors and their families in Bartow, FL and throughout the surrounding areas. We would be happy to help you with nursing home planning. Here's how our process works.
We'll start with a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss your current situation and plans for the future. If you haven't already selected your preferred nursing home, we can assist you with that as well. Many nursing homes now accept Medicare and Medicaid to help you cover the costs of your ongoing care. If you choose a Medicare nursing home or Medicaid nursing home, we'll help you stay on top of all the necessary paperwork to ensure you maintain access to your benefits for the duration of your stay.
That is not the only financial concern, though. We can also help you with preparing or updating your Last Will and Testament, and we can institute a power of attorney to make decisions on your behalf in the event that you become unable to do so yourself. Even if you are in good health, no one knows what the future holds, so it is best to be prepared for all eventualities. This will ensure that your loved ones are aware of your wishes with regards to your medical care and the distribution of your assets.
Of course, no one likes to think about the end of their life, but a little planning now can save your loved ones a lot of pain and confusion in the future. We understand how difficult some of these topics are to talk about, so we will always work with you in a manner that is compassionate and understanding. Get in touch with us today to book your free consultation to see for yourself how nursing home planning can benefit you and your family.
