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.

Today Is A Good Day To Plan For Your Future

The experienced elder law attorneys at Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP, serve clients throughout south-central New York state in matters related to elder law and long-term care planning. Through caring, individualized attention and practical counsel, we assist clients in addressing the issues brought on by advancing years and help them protect and preserve their wealth.

Two major concerns facing many clients today are declining health and preservation of assets. Some common questions we can answer include:

  • What kind of long-term care do I need? Will it be in a nursing home or at home?
  • Does Medicaid pay for nursing home and in-home care?
  • Is my estate and elder law planning up to date?
  • Have I done any asset protection planning?
  • Do I have a durable general power of attorney with broad asset protection planning powers?
  • Who will administer my estate?
  • When I pass away, what happens if my children don’t agree with the will I have in place?
  • Do I have an appropriate health care proxy and living will?

At Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP, our experienced elder law attorneys are passionate about helping people of all ages with their wills, retirement strategies, Medicaid concerns and nursing home planning. We work with elderly clients, their adult children and even young families who want to plan now for the future.
