Elder Care Asset Protection Planning
Nobody enjoys thinking about the challenges of the aging process, which include long-term and chronic conditions, disabilities, and cognitive decline. There are specific actions you take today to ensure your family has solid ground for life’s curve balls of the future. Roughly seventy percent (70%) of adults over the age of 65 will need some type of long-term care during their lifetime. Elder care asset protection planning involves protection of family assets, while simultaneously ensuring the family legacy is carried out in a way that is according to the family’s wishes.
Our focused elder care asset protection planning will preserve your family’s assets while allowing you or your loved one to receive the critical benefits he or she may need in the future. This plan accounts for the possibility of needing eligibility for Medicaid (TennCare) benefits in the future and preserves assets in the event a long-term care scenario becomes a reality in a loved one’s life. Failing to account for the possibility of long-term care could result in estate recovery.
