Dunedin Nursing Home Planning Attorney

The rising cost of nursing home care in Florida leaves many Pinellas County seniors and their families facing what seems like an impossible situation. Qualifying for Medicaid is often the only way these seniors can afford to live in a nursing home. But they currently have too high an income or too many assets to meet Medicaid’s strict limits on both.

Medicaid laws are complex and it is far too easy to get trapped in a situation where you do not even know what step to take first. Fortunately, our Dunedin nursing home planning attorney can help. Attorney William Rambaum is a Florida Bar Board Certified Elder Law Specialist who has spent the past 35 years helping clients and families understand their legal options when it comes to paying for the costs of nursing home care.

Answering Your Questions Regarding Your Future Nursing Home Needs

Clients that seek advice regarding nursing home planning have many questions: How can I pay for nursing home care? Will Medicaid pay for my nursing home? If so, do I have to get rid of all of my assets? Is it too late for me to do anything about this?

By working with our Dunedin nursing home planning attorney, we can help provide answers to these questions and many others. Nursing home planning is not about finding a quick fix. It is about taking the time to put your affairs in order now, so that if the time comes that you need to consider moving into a nursing home, you and your family are not caught flat-footed. Among the services we provide in this context are:

  • taking full stock of your current financial picture;
  • assessing your potential nursing home options and the associated costs;
  • developing an asset protection strategy that protects your ability to seek Medicaid benefits for nursing home care;
  • creating an estate plan that furthers your asset protection and nursing home planning goals; and
  • making sure any final nursing home planning reflects your preferences and wishes.

Leaving any of these decisions until the last minute is always a mistake. You do not want to place yourself in a position to require immediate nursing home care without figuring out how to pay for it. Nor do you wish to burden your family with trying to figure out your arrangements for you. Not only do you need to consider the emotional burden of such an approach but also the financial cost.
