Medicaid Nursing Home Benefits

Protecting assets from the devastating effects of long-term care expenses is one of the most important wealth preservation and wealth transfer issues facing seniors. One out of two women and one out of four men will be admitted to a nursing home at some point in their life, so the odds of a nursing home stay are significant. Unfortunately, the cost of long-term care is expensive and it continues to escalate. Often when one spouse enters a nursing home, the couple’s life savings are exhausted within a year. Houma Medicaid Long-Term Care attorney, John Sirois, can help you qualify for Louisiana Medicaid long-term care assistance without giving up all of your income or spending down all of your assets. We employ a number of sophisticated planning techniques to legally protect your assets including: Asset Protection Trusts, Medicaid annuities, promissory notes, gifting strategies, and maximizing exempt assets.

However, if you or a loved one are currently admitted or about to be admitted into a nursing home we can still help you preserve significant assets from spend-down.
