Winter Haven, FL Nursing Home Planning
When the time comes in your life that you no longer want to or are able to care for yourself in your Winter Haven home, a nursing home can be an attractive option, but there is more to nursing home planning than just moving in. You'll need to carefully weigh your options and evaluate your finances to ensure you are able to cover the costs for the duration of your retirement.
Medicaid and Medicare Nursing Home Planning
Here at Family Elder Law, we specialize in helping seniors and their families through the nursing home planning process. If you have the funds available, you'll have your pick of nursing homes in Winter Haven and the surrounding suburbs. You also have the option of choosing a Medicare nursing home, and we can help ensure you are making the most of your Medicare benefits. If you are eligible to receive Medicaid, you can also choose a Medicaid nursing home, using your benefits to cover your expenses.
In addition to selecting an appropriate nursing home, you'll have other financial concerns as well. As you near the end of your life, you'll want to set up your Last Will & Testament to explain to your heirs how you would like your assets to be divided up after your death. This is a binding legal document, so you'll need the assistance of our attorneys to draw up the paperwork for you.
In creating your will, you may also wish to set up a Power of Attorney. The person you select will be able to make medical, financial, business and other important decisions on your behalf if you become unable to do so for yourself, like if you suffer from dementia or another debilitating medical condition. We'll help you create the documents and delineate the powers you wish to grant to your representative, along with the conditions that must be met in order for them to take control.
