Haines City, FL Nursing Home Planning
People have many reasons for entering nursing homes. It could be that you have difficulty completing your daily activities and require ongoing care, or it could simply be that you no longer want the responsibility of keeping up a house. You might not have any family nearby and want the companionship of other residents. Whatever your reason, nursing home planning takes care and precision, and Family Elder Law can help you out with that.
Whether you are planning to move into a government-funded Medicaid nursing home, a Medicare nursing home that makes the most of your benefits, or a private facility, the nursing home planning process is relatively similar. We are highly experienced in this area and can guide you in making informed decisions about your finances, assets and medical care.
The Nursing Home Planning Process
Those who enter nursing homes typically have ongoing medical needs, and you may reach a point someday where it is difficult for you to make sound decisions regarding your care. We'll help you set up a power of attorney. This is a person you trust to make medical and financial decisions on your behalf. This person will be able to act as if they were you, so take the time to choose wisely and clearly communicate your wishes to your chosen individual.
You'll also need to make a plan for the division of your assets after you have passed. We'll work with you to put together a Last Will & Testament to let your heirs know of your wishes. This makes things easier on your beneficiaries when it comes time to distribute inheritances. A will is a legally binding document, so you can rest assured that your directives will be carried out as you intended.
