Medicaid Spend Down Planning
Gary L. White, Esq.
The best time to plan for long-term care assistance is long before you need it. However, many people are caught unprepared. With the right guidance, the assistance you need may still be available.
– WHEN YOU NEED LONG-TERM CARE IMMEDIATELY
A crisis may arise because a loved one suffered a sudden stroke or heart attack, going from healthy and self-sufficient to in need of nursing care overnight. You may have taken a loved one to the hospital, only to hear that he or she must be discharged to a nursing home or other skilled-care facility. Or, an elderly loved one who isn’t local may have been quietly deteriorating, catching the family off guard when they arrive for a holiday visit. In some cases, caretakers may simply have been too overwhelmed by the day-to-day business of tending to a loved one to prepare for the eventual need for long-term care.
Too often, people who find themselves in immediate need of long-term care for themselves or a loved one believe it’s too late to protect assets and qualify for Medicaid. Fortunately, you still have options.
