Plant City, FL Nursing Home Planning

Medicaid and Medicare Nursing Home Planning When it comes to nursing home planning, there are several steps you'll need to take to ensure your assets and health are protected. There is more to this process than just choosing a nursing home, though that is an important component. At Family Elder Law, we work with seniors in Plant City, FL and the surrounding area. We will be more than happy to help you make these important decisions with regards to your retirement years.

We'll start by helping you evaluate which nursing home best meets your needs. This includes evaluating your income, budget and government benefits. Depending on your particular situation, a Medicaid nursing home, Medicare nursing home or private facility may be best suited to your needs and preferences. We'll help you decide which one makes the most sense not just from your personal perspective, but from a financial standpoint as well.

While on the topic of finances, you'll also need to put together your Last Will & Testament. This important document lets your heirs know how you would like your assets divided after you have passed. We have helped countless seniors with preparing wills, and we can help you too. We know all the right questions to ask to ensure you don't inadvertently leave anything out.

We'll also help you name and set up a power of attorney. This is a person you choose to represent you when you cannot do so yourself. Your power of attorney can make financial, business and medical decisions on your behalf, so be sure to communicate your wishes to this person while you are still of sound mind. We'll help you prepare the power of attorney documents to ensure everything is done correctly.

If you are thinking about moving into a nursing home for the rest of your retirement, it is best to start planning sooner rather than later. When you book your initial free consultation with us, we'll go over the nursing home planning process with you in greater detail, taking the time to answer any questions as they arise. We want to ensure you fully understand the next steps. Reach out to us today to get started.
