The decision to move a family member or loved one into a nursing home is one of the most difficult decisions you can make. Perhaps the move is being made because the family member can no longer care for himself or herself…or has a progressive disease like Alzheimer’s…or has had a stroke or heart attack. No matter the reason, those involved are almost always under great stress. At times like these, it’s important that you pause, take a deep breath and understand that there are things you can do. Good information is available and you can make the right choices for you and your loved one.
This Consumer’s Guide to Medicaid Planning and Division of Assets is designed to help provide you with information and answers to some of the questions you will encounter. These are questions which we, as Elder Law attorneys and nursing home professionals, deal with on a daily basis. Our clients have found this guide to be a valuable resource, and we hope you will find it useful too.
