For many residents in New York and elsewhere, it is difficult to think of a time one will no longer be able to care for him or herself or make their own decisions. Unfortunately, it is more and more likely that in our old age, we will require care and assistance. Because of that, long-term care planning has becoming an essential step to take.

While it is a very common step to take, it can be a challenging and emotional one as well. Because of this, many individuals put this off as long as possible. However, no matter a person’s age, it is never too early to establish this plan. At Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano, LLP, our main focus is on elder law and meeting the needs of our clients. With regards to long-term care planning, we take the time to ensure our clients are well informed. This provides our clients with the information and tools necessary to establish a plan that works best for them.

Every long-term care plan is unique to the needs and goals of our clients. We focus on major issues, such as how one will pay for nursing home care if it is needed, ways to preserve one’s nest egg, who they will entrust to make medical decisions and who will take responsibility of your decision making if you become incapacitated. These tend to be difficult thoughts to consider and decisions to make, but in the long scheme of things, they are extremely important ones to address.
