Nursing Home Crisis Planning

When a family member must be admitted to nursing home, many questions surface:

  • Can we keep the home?
  • If we can keep the home, how can we afford it?
  • Do I have to spend all of my money on the nursing home?
  • If we spend all of the money on Dad’s care, how will Mom have enough money to live?
  • Will my long term care insurance pay the whole nursing home bill?

If you are facing the unexpected costs of paying for long term care, or if you have a parent or loved one who is relying on you to help them through an unexpected nursing home or long term care need, we are ready to work with you to help you plan for this stage of life. Mountain Empire Legal Services has experience assisting elderly persons who are facing the unexpected costs of transitioning to a care center. This is often a time of substantial emotional and economic stress that can also lead to a financial crisis.

Because of a lack of planning, many seniors and their families in this crisis situation end up paying for nursing home care out of their savings. As experienced crisis planning attorneys, we have the knowledge and training to help you apply for and qualify for Medicaid to help you save as much of your estate as possible during this unexpected time.
