What is Elder Law in Florida? Contact Vanover Law Firm P.A.

As you grow older, many financial and legal considerations need to be addressed in order to preserve your estate from financial threats. The biggest threat to any family estate is long-term care costs associated with nursing home care. The cost of long-term nursing home care is prohibitively expensive. Most Americans are relying on the government to pay for these significant costs.

According to Genworth, 76% of Americans will need 26 months of long-term care after the age of 65. Less than 7% of Americans have long-term care insurance, though. What happens when one spouse needs care and the healthy spouse is still at home paying the same bills as before?

It’s human nature to put off initiating and implementing seemingly difficult and overwhelming legal arrangements. However, the planning you do today can save your loved ones the uncertainty of not knowing your wishes upon your passing. It will also save them the stress of dealing with difficult medical choices, probate court, and costly estate taxes.

How we can help you:

Your assets are at risk of spend down rules for receiving help from the government, which means you have to blow through your life savings before the government will help you. This is where pre-planning becomes so important. If you pre-plan and correctly structure your assets, then your assets become uncountable, meaning the government to will pay for your long-term care while you get to protect your assets.
