Palm Harbor Nursing Home Planning Attorney

It is no secret that Florida has one of the largest elderly populations in the United States. This also means that the Sunshine State hosts a larger-than-average share of nursing home residents. For many Palm Harbor residents, the prospect of spending their final years in a long-term care facility can be equal parts reassuring and frightening. One reason for the latter is the prospect of actually paying for nursing home care.

Indeed, the average cost of a shared room in a Florida nursing home can easily top $100,000 per year. Most retirees simply do not have the financial resources to pay such costs on their own. This is where working with an experienced Palm Harbor nursing home planning attorney can prove invaluable. Attorney William Rambaum is a Florida Board Certified Elder Law Specialist. His office specializes in assisting clients throughout Pinellas County in preparing for the eventual need for nursing home care.

Why You Need to Plan Ahead When It Comes to Long-Term Care in Florida

It is never a good idea to leave anything to the last minute. This is especially true when it comes to the need to arrange and pay for nursing home care. By taking steps now–when you are still of sound mind and body–you can make the process a lot easier on yourself if and when the time comes for you to transition to institutional living.

Some of the things our office can do to help in this process include:

  • Deciding What You Want: What nursing home do you want to live in? Do you want to be close to family or in a particular location? What nursing homes are actually within your budget? We can help you in figuring out the answers to those questions and more.
  • Putting Your Affairs in Order: You need to carefully consider what you will do with your home, car, and other assets when it comes time to enter a nursing home. If you are looking to qualify for Medicaid to help pay for your nursing care. We can help you in taking stock of your current–and future–financial picture and develop an asset protection strategy that benefits both you and your family.
  • Making an Estate Plan: Nursing home planning should not be viewed in isolation. Rather, it needs to be part of making (or revising) your complete estate plan. It is important to have a will, power of attorney, and advance directives so that people you trust are in a position to make decisions for you should you become incapacitated.
