Avoid Nursing Home Costs?
Don’t pay long-term care costs without consulting an Elder Law Attorney first. One too many times has a client contacted me after paying the nursing home thousands of dollars for a loved one. The State of Connecticut and Federal Law have in place a variety of methods in preserving assets for your family while the government pays your costs. The nursing home does not practice law and therefore, cannot implement these strategies. The nursing home will usually tell you to spend-down all your assets before qualifying for help. Don’t fall into that trap! Call me.
