Will Paying For A Nursing Home Drain Your Savings?
Whether you are currently enjoying your retirement years or understand those years are approaching faster than you realize, one thing is for sure: You have worked hard investing your money and saving for retirement. But what if you or your spouse suffers an injury or illness that results in the need for nursing home care or home health care services? Would your hard-earned savings be drained and your family’s financial security be in jeopardy?
Losing all of your savings to pay for nursing home care or home health care is not inevitable, if you plan now. The experienced elder care attorneys of Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP, can help you secure your future and your family’s financial stability. It’s never too early — or too late — to start planning for your future.
