Whether we like it or not, we all will need elder care at some point in the future. Luckily, there are attorneys who practice for this very moment in our lives. Below are some signs you may need an elder care attorney for a relative.
Everyone will assume their medicare will cover long-term institutionalized health care, but in reality, medicare only covers 100 days of institutionalized care. After that, long-term care could easily reach up to six figures in cost.
Having an attorney to work out the details with will allow you to cut the price down to a manageable level for yourself or your relative.
Coming to an elder care attorney can put you on the right path to avoiding this six-figure cost. The right attorney will be able to legally and ethically get Medicaid applied to you without breaking the bank. With Medicaid in place, your family member will no longer be without long-term care for their final years.
No one likes thinking about their future as an elderly person, but it's important to know your options for when you are no longer to care for yourself, and finding an elder care attorney is the first step..
