We offer a range of elder law services.
Estate Planning for Seniors
In addition to the Core Estate Planning most younger people need, the estate plan of seniors should also account for the concerns and needs that are often unique to them, such as the more acute risk of long-term care or incapacity.
We work with individuals, couples or adult children on behalf of their parent to assess Medicaid eligibility for the person in need of care. We also design and create Long-Term Care Protection Plans to help them meet Medicaid eligibility requirements while preserving as much of their assets as the law permits.
Receipt of Medicaid benefits depends on submitting a proper Medicaid Application. We have a lot of experience preparing Medicaid Applications and consistent success in getting our clients approved.
Veterans Benefits Planning
The Department of Veterans Affairs offers several different benefit programs for veterans. We work with veterans and surviving spouses of veterans to help them qualify for the Non-Service Connected Pension benefit, sometimes referred to as Aid & Attendance. This great benefit can help supplement the cost of different medical expenses including care in-home or at Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing Homes.
Long-term care counseling
Long Term Care options and questions can be overwhelming. We often meet with individuals and families to counsel them on what LTC options exist for their loved one and answer questions about the LTC process.
Most nursing homes in the Kansas City Metro area cost around $6000 a month. We work with families to develop Long-Term Care Protection Plans so they can afford the best care for their loved one without financially devastating the spouse or dependents still at home.
