Elder Law: What You Need To Know
Elder law is an aspect of estate planning that focuses primarily on the needs of families and individuals as they age. Issues of aging include senior housing and home care, long-term (or nursing home) care, conservatorships and health care documents, Medicare and Medi-Cal.
What You Can Expect
As our population ages, more and more of us confront elder law-related issues, whether for ourselves or our parents. One of the most pressing issues is long-term custodial or nursing home care, neither of which is normally covered by traditional health insurance or Medicare. There are many misconceptions about the financial and insurance aspects that come with long-term care, and it’s best to consult a professional so you can ensure you’re making the best choice for your family.
Medi-Cal: What Is It?
We assist seniors and their families in making the tough decisions regarding long-term care planning, including whether Medi-Cal eligibility may be an option. There are many Medi-Cal insurance programs available in California, but our firm’s focus is on Medi-Cal for long-term care.
If you or a loved one has experienced a sudden illness or serious accident, you understand how abruptly everything can change. Finding and affording quality care on short notice can be stressful and draining. We can help you determine the best options for care and how to qualify for Medi-Cal to help finance these options, and we can assist in whichever direction you or your loved ones choose to take.
