Addressing The Fears Of Long-Term Care Planning

Long-term care planning can be overwhelming for a person who is unfamiliar with the options that may be available to accomplish specific goals. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of how to pay for nursing home care. Many individuals know about Medicaid benefits. However, the prospect of qualifying for Medicaid is frightening. At the Law Office of Amy B. Van Fossen, P.A., in Melbourne, Florida, we take a holistic approach to long-term care planning to help families throughout Brevard County obtain peace of mind that their long-term care plans are directly tailored to their unique circumstances.

Comprehensive long-term care planning takes into account a wide variety of concerns. Our global approach will help you identify options that may be available under your unique circumstances to address quality of life and quality of care concerns. Often, families look at long-term planning solely as preserving assets to qualify for Medicaid.

A Financial Background And Substantial Experience Helping Seniors

Our elder law attorney has a background in financial planning and Amy B. Van Fossen will work with financial professionals to help you optimize your plan to give you peace of mind that the plan is ideally suited to your unique situation. We explore many tools to craft the best plan to meet the needs of each client. Amortizing assets over time may serve the important goals of maximizing quality of life and care concerns. Insurance policies may be appropriate for some families, while trusts, annuities or life estates may be more appropriate for other circumstances.

While pursuing an effective elder care plan, you may be looking to find the appropriate facility that will be your mother of father’s home, while also acting as caregiver for your loved one. We will explain the benefit of having a Medicaid-compliant personal services agreement in place to protect your family’s assets. If you are a veteran, or the spouse of a vet, we can help you understand the eligibility requirements of VA Aid and Assistance benefits. In fact, we will gather all of the documents in advance of the need for A&A benefits, when possible, to streamline the application process in the future for veterans and their families.
