Nursing Home Planning
At the Malee Law firm we are dedicated advocates for elderly residents at nursing home and assisted living facilities. With over twenty years of experience, we understand the importance of establishing a plan to provide the highest quality care for your family member. We offer a variety of planning options for older adults who need nursing home care.
Short Term Placement
The typical short term placement is where the older adult is admitted to a nursing home for rehabilitation or therapy with a plan to return to the community.
Short term placements are generally not financially devastating to the older adult for many reasons. First, the cost of the care is limited by the amount of time the older adult will be in the nursing home. Second, Medicare and supplement insurance may cover most of the nursing home costs of this short term care.
Long Term Placement
Protecting the Spouse at Home
- If an older adult is admitted to the nursing home for long term placement, and his or she has a spouse that is still at home, how can the older adult protect the assets, income and home for the spouse at home and still pay their nursing home bill?
