With the high cost of nursing home care in California, many elders struggle to strike a balance between providing assets for loved ones and saving enough money to pay for long-term care. With skilled legal planning, it is often possible to spare assets from nursing home care that can cost up to $7,000 per month and more.
Nursing home care can wipe out a life’s savings in a matter of years, even months. It is not uncommon for a couple to see all of their assets go to a nursing home, leaving little or nothing for the nonresident spouse to live on, and nothing to pass on to their children.
At the Estate Preservation Group, I provide a broad range of legal services to elders, including long-term care planning. I can help you explore options for maintaining assets while qualifying for Medicaid, Medi-Cal and other benefit programs. I can also assist with Medi-Cal planning to help you understand all of your financial options.
