A Consumer’s Guide to Medicaid Planning
The decision to move a family member or loved one into a nursing home is one of the most difficult decisions you can make. This booklet is designed to provide you with information and answers to some questions you are likely to encounter. These are questions, which I, as an elder law attorney and long-term care professional, deal with on a daily basis. Many of our clients have found this guide to be a valuable resource, and I hope you will find it useful, too.
An Estate Plan Overview
We may only get one chance to plan our estates, and how we plan our estates will have a profound impact on our families and the ones we love. Each family has different needs and different concerns. It is important that your estate plan is designed for your particular family situations. Estate planning is a combination of the rational mind that knows what to do with information, and the compassionate mind that teaches and listens. This booklet keeps these principles closely in mind.
