Elder Law

Eldercare & Elder Law Attorney Michigan

The cost of elder long-term care can be perceived as the threatening of financial security that a person or couple has worked hard to obtain.  The fear of outliving one’s own means is a reality for millions of people.  Elder estate planning can make all the difference for you and your loved ones. Individualized and strategic estate planning is required to optimize the remaining assets of the client(s).  As Michigan eldercare and Michigan elder law practitioners, our goals are:

  1. To provide direction for the long-term care needs of the individual or spouses.
  2. To preserve assets for the benefit of the at-home or well spouse or any dependents.
  3. To ease the fear of impoverishment.
  4. To tap all existing sources of assistance to meet the cost of long-term care. (e.g. Medicaid, Veteran benefits).
  5. To help you evaluate the benefits and limitations of the public health care system. (Medicaid)
  6. To advise you of the impact of any plan on the client, family, the estate and heirs.
     

Assisting Michigan Families with Elder Crisis Management

When a catastrophic medical incident occurs, there are only two ways to become eligible under the Medicaid rules and regulations.  The Government’s way; or our way. Our team can assist you in understanding the current rules so that you will not be forced to unnecessarily spend down in a manner that is not consistent with your overall legacy plans.  If you wait until a crisis hits, or you are admitted to a nursing home, our lawyers can still protect some of your assets; however, if you start planning earlier, you can legally protect far more.

Our office offers free seminars to explain long term care, and asset preservation planning so we can speak before your civic group on this subject.  Please call our offices for upcoming seminar date availability or use the contact tab to inquire online.
