ELDER LAW focuses on the unique challenges that come with growing older. It includes several practice areas, including asset protection, estate planning, Medicaid planning, Veterans benefits, and more. At Holy & Schultz, our goal is to help seniors to remain independent for as long as possible, protect hard-earned assets from the exorbitant cost of long-term care, and provide thoughtful counsel in a Medicaid crisis.
Non-crisis Medicaid Planning is for people who are healthy now, but want to have a plan in place to protect their life savings if they become incapacitated in the future. At Holy & Schultz, we can create a plan that allows you to preserve your life savings in the face of high long-term care costs, as well as adequately manage your financial and personal affairs in the event of incapacity. With such a plan in place, you can protect your assets, properly manage your healthcare needs, and enjoy greater piece of mind.
Medicaid Crisis Planning occurs when a person has been admitted to a nursing home, or told they must enter one soon, and have been informed that he or she has too many assets to qualify for Medicaid assistance. The laws governing Medicaid eligibility are complex. Contact Holy & Schultz as soon as possible if you or a loved one is facing a Medicaid crisis. We can help navigate through the crisis to obtain the assistance you or your loved one needs.
