How Will You Pay For Your Long-Term Or Nursing Home Care?
While most people do not like to think about getting older, it is important to plan for your elder years now. If you wait to address issues in elder care, you may find that your options for lifestyle, budget and well-being are limited. Planning issues in long-term care are varied.
Questions to address may include:
- If needed, do you want in-home care or nursing home care?
- Can you afford in-home care?
- Can you afford the nursing home of your choosing?
- How can you save for future care?
- Is long-term care insurance right for you?
- How can you qualify for government benefits such as Medicaid?

These are all very important questions, but it is best not to answer them on your own due to the legal complexities involved. For example, long-term care insurance can be expensive, and policies can be confusing to understand. Many policies have high deductibles and multiple exclusions. Even if you can afford it, long-term care insurance may not be the best option.
There are also strict laws associated with Medicaid qualification. There are income limits and wealth transfer laws that could exclude you from benefits.
Although long-term care planning involves many considerations, you do not have to figure it out on your own. By enlisting the services of an elder law attorney, you can learn how to choose the right type of planning for your specific needs.
