Brooklyn/Kings County, New York
More and more, the firm's New York elder law estate planning attorneys and paralegals are seeing clients who originally came in to plan their legacies now make appointments to see if they can reevaluate their legal and financial plans in order to afford long term care. A free consultation can determine whether or not certain New York elder law techniques like "spousal refusal" or "gift and loan strategies" are the best solution to this increasing need.
Long-term care insurance is the preferred option for protecting assets from nursing home costs, since it helps keep clients out of the nursing home - by paying for home care. When you are turned down for long term-care insurance, or are unable to afford the premium, the next best option may be the Medicaid Asset Protection Trust (MAPT).
