Long-Term Care Planning: Thinking About The Future

People are living longer than ever before, which means more and more people must give serious consideration to long-term care planning. Basically, long-term care planning is designed to help you preserve your assets while still enabling you to receive the type of care that is needed as you age.

Avoiding Escalating Expenses

Skilled nursing care does not come cheap, and for most people who require in-home care or those who are living in a nursing home can find their life's savings exhausted within a year. Long-term care planning is designed to avoid this result by setting aside assets or placing assets in a trust to help you qualify for health care benefits.

The earlier you begin thinking about long-term care planning, the smooth this transition can be. However, if a loved one is in need of immediate assistance, attorney Goode can explore your asset preservation options and what is the best way to alleviate the financial burden of extended care.
