Description

Long-term care is necessary for a lot of people.  But long-term care is expensive.  VERY expensive.  You've likely heard horror stories of people losing their houses to pay for care.  Or about nursing home costs being over $13,000 per month.  What's worse is the misinformed "advice" that is often heard through the proverbial grapevine: "It's OK to give away $15,000 per year"; "If your money is in a trust, it's safe"; "You can just give your house to your kids." These statements aren't necessarily true!  Long-term care planning MUST be done the right way.  If it's not, your assets might be at risk.  Come learn the truth from an experienced elder law attorney. You'll walk away understanding how you can properly protect your life savings.  You'll also learn about Medicaid and how it can help you pay for long-term care costs.  You'll learn strategies to protect money if a crisis arises.  Medicaid's confusing rules, what it takes to apply, who can help you complete an application, and much more will be covered.  All students will receive an easy-to-understand Medicaid and planning for long-term care guidebook written by our attorneys.
