Maintain Security by Planning Ahead

When nearing retirement, it is important to understand your future healthcare needs and prepare for the high costs of long-term skilled nursing care and assisted living services. At Winkler Legal, we help elders and their families plan today for tomorrow’s healthcare crisis. As we age, our need for healthcare services increases. It is this reality that requires taking steps today to plan for the level of care you want in the future, while also protecting your assets from being spent down.

Our long-term care planning clients complete a life care planning packet to help us better understand your financial picture and family dynamics so that we can create a long-term care plan tailored to your unique circumstances. By planning at least five years ahead of needing skilled nursing or assisted care, we can protect most, if not all of your assets, while assuring that you will receive the level of care you need and desire.

Winkler Legal is on your side to help protect your assets while also qualifying you for the best skilled nursing care possible.

What is Long-Term Care?

Long-term care refers to the ongoing services and support needed to manage a chronic health condition or disability.  Long-term care includes medical and rehabilitative services and assistance with activities of daily living. Care can be provided in a variety of settings, including at home, in an assisted living facility, at an adult day-care center, or in a nursing home.

Will I Ever Need Long-Term Care?

More than likely.  It is estimated that 1 in 1.14 people age 65 and older will need long-term care. If you do not plan ahead or take the necessary steps now, the odds are you and your family will likely experience future financial distress caused by the costs of long-term care.

Medicaid Home Care

Traditionally, Medicaid has paid for long-term care in a nursing home, but because most individuals would rather be cared for at home and home care is cheaper, all 50 states now have Medicaid programs that offer at least some home care.
