An elder law attorney can help you plan your estate to protect your beneficiaries by creating a comprehensive estate plan that addresses your specific needs and goals.
Long-term planning care refers to planning for your future care needs, especially as you age. It includes various legal, financial, and healthcare planning options to ensure you can live comfortably and receive the care you need later. This can consist of creating a will or trust, setting up powers of attorney for healthcare and financial matters, purchasing long-term care insurance, exploring options for Medicaid planning and asset protection, and more.
Nursing home care and at-home care are two options for seniors who require assistance with their daily needs. Nursing homes provide 24/7 medical care and supervision in a communal living environment. At-home care involves hiring a caregiver to provide assistance with daily tasks in the senior's own home. The choice between the two options often depends on the senior's health condition, level of independence, and personal preference. While nursing homes can provide more comprehensive medical care and social interaction, at-home care allows seniors to maintain their independence and stay in the comfort of their own homes.
Medicaid is a needs-based program, so you must meet certain income and asset requirements. NY Elder Law Group will help you understand the eligibility rules and determine if you meet the criteria. You will need to provide documentation of your income, assets, and other financial information to apply for Medicaid. This can include tax returns, bank statements, pay stubs, and more. You will need to provide all of the required documentation and complete the application accurately and completely. The Medicaid application process can take several weeks or even months, depending on your state and individual circumstances. You will receive a decision letter in the mail that will inform you of your Medicaid benefits or if you need to provide additional information.
Lori and her team are excellent at what they do. The attention to detail, knowledge of state laws regarding real estate and elder law is top notch. You won't be disappointed.
Great attorney who helped my husband hasan tremendously to close my case within 2 weeks. Highly recommended"
I highly recommend Lori and her office, impeccable job, honest, she is very human , who listen and understands.I appreciate the very detailed invoice she gave to me where every dollar spent was explained transparent transaction
I initially approached Lori Somekh based upon the fact that she was a fellow alumni from St. John's University. Knowing that the school has many excellent practicing attorneys was important for me, but one that specialized in elder care even more so. I wanted someone with the experience and expertise that could assist me in setting up Power of Attorney for my Grandparents. Lori did a great job. I would definitely recommend her to a friend and plan to use her services again.
