We’re located in Dutchess County. We represent and help clients in the Mid-Hudson Valley, planning for when their parents or their spouse may be going to a nursing home.

Many people think you must plan at least five years in advance to protect your assets. That’s a misconception. Even if you don’t make that five year mark, you have done no planning and your parent or loved one is going to a nursing home tomorrow, there are ways we can produce documents that will protect your assets.

In most cases, we can protect half what your loved one has after going to the nursing home.

The important thing here is to deal with an attorney who deals with the nuances of the Medicaid application, Medicaid eligibility laws to find clauses in the law that would protect more assets. We can always plan.
