Sebring, FL Nursing Home Planning
When you retire, you'll likely reach the point eventually where you have to decide whether or not to stay in your own home. If you have a medical condition or struggle with your daily activities, a nursing home can be a great option to provide the care and assistance you need. However, there is more to nursing home planning than simply selecting a facility. You'll want to ensure your retirement savings, coupled with Medicare or Medicaid benefits will be enough to get you through your golden years comfortably.
Medicaid and Medicare Nursing Home Benefits
Here at Family Elder Law, we have been helping seniors in Sebring, FL and the surrounding areas with these important decisions for many years, and we can help you too. We'll work closely with you to create a full picture of your financial situation and any benefits you are eligible to receive so that we can determine whether you should be looking for a Medicaid nursing home, Medicare nursing home or another type of care facility.
Throughout this process, we'll help you evaluate your finances and start planning for what will happen to your assets after you have passed away. We understand how difficult this can be to think and talk about, and we strive to be as understanding and compassionate as possible at all times. We'll guide you through the process of creating your Last Will & Testament step by step so that it is as stress-free as possible.
In drawing up your will, it is also a good idea to institute a Power of Attorney. This is a person you appoint to handle your affairs, including finances, business holdings, medical decisions and other powers you choose to grant. Your power of attorney will take over making these crucial decisions for you if you become incapacitated and can no longer make them for yourself.
