When you love someone, it can be difficult bringing up the subject of how to finance their long-term care.
However, it’s worth scheduling a consultation with our Norton Shores Medicaid attorney so you understand your options after you retire.
Start Medicaid Planning
The best time to plan for the future is while you still have good physical and mental health.
Medicaid covers some (not all) of nursing home expenses, which is why you need an elder law attorney for asset protection and estate planning.
Prepare for Nursing Home Costs
According to the Michigan Department of Human Services, the average cost of nursing home care in Michigan for 2019 is $8,469 per month. At that rate, even a relatively short stay at a nursing home can wipe out all your family’s resources.
All too often, families with elderly persons in need of long-term care don’t seek the help of a Medicaid lawyer until they have already exhausted most of their resources. With their savings gone, 7 out of 10 nursing home residents end up relying on Medicaid’s Medical Assistance Program to help pay for their care.
