Not only can Serafini, Michalowski, Derkacz and Associates, P.C. provide seniors, veterans and their families with long-term care and benefit planning, it can also provide insight and planning for seniors and their families needing assistance with Medicaid for nursing home care. Moving into the West Michigan area in order to assist families and seniors with their care-giving needs, the firm will provide expert legal advice to solve elder law and other legal problems.
Nursing home planning creates eligibility for Medicaid sooner than otherwise would be available through traditional “spend down” strategies. Money and assets can be preserved even at the time of nursing home admission. For most seniors entering a nursing facility, 50% to 70% of an individual’s assets; and, up to 100% of a married couple’s assets can be protected through effective elder law planning. The key is to find an attorney that is skilled in the practice of elder law to use long term care planning strategies. By planning, families can care for their loved ones and protect their assets to supplement the quality of care and provide for the upkeep and maintenance of a protected homestead.
