When the prospect of long-term care arises for a loved one, financial pressure can mount in a hurry. Family members are often left wondering how they will be able to afford expensive nursing home bills, medication, equipment and other needs. An experienced elder law attorney can help you explore all the opportunities available to you, including government benefit programs and asset protection strategies.
At Friedman Elder Law Department, LLC, we handle a broad range of elder law issues for clients in Coral Springs, Boca Raton and throughout South Florida. Attorney Heidi Friedman will work with you personally to guide you through the process of qualifying for benefits so you can be assured that everything is being done to get your loved one the care and protection they need.
Making The Process Work For You
The Medicaid qualification process must be handled with care. There are strict look-back periods that will be scrutinized for financial transactions. If the timing of a transaction is wrong, a person may not qualify. This is why it is important to plan ahead and to do so with the guidance of an experienced elder law attorney.
If you are a veteran or the spouse of a veteran, there are special VA Benefits available to you that can help pay for long-term care and assisted living. Dealing with the VA is a process that can be frustrating and confusing, but Heidi handles these issues every day. She will carefully analyze your situation to determine all the benefits to which you are entitled and provide you with the strong representation you need to obtain them.
