Preservation Of Elder Laws In Pennsylvania

We stay up to date on these legal matters and any federal or state changes that occur to elder law. Having handled estate situations for more than 40 years, we know how important it is to stay up to date on laws governing the elderly, and our Pittsburgh estate planning lawyer is committed to helping you resolve all of your concerns and needs.
Nursing Home Options
It is important to consider all your options when looking to the future or dealing with an elderly loved one. Nursing home bills can amount to almost $10,000 a month and can add a lot of stress to the family. A lawyer from our firm can help you navigate all options so you have a peace of mind. There are other options such as personal home care, LIFE program, adult day care, and in-home nurse situations that may be better for your situation.
To help protect you and your loved ones from the insurmountable cost of a nursing home, consider applying for Medicaid. The Medicaid process can help protect you under the law from these high prices. Medicaid is a program administered by both the federal and state governments that gives individuals different options for healthcare.
Preparation For Medicaid Application
If you are a U.S. citizen, a resident of Pennsylvania, and are either “categorically needy” or “medically needy,” you can apply for Medicaid. The Medicaid application is a complicated process and by filling it out on your own, you risk losing the opportunity to receive deserved Medicaid. It is important to enlist the help of an experienced estate planning lawyer who can direct you on the application and provide the special handling necessary.
Consults With The Department Of Public Welfare
It is the duty of our firm to provide the most efficient and profitable estate planning care that we can. Part of that is our commitment to consult with the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare. The purpose of this is to provide resources to families of a decedent who need a place to turn when dividing up estates.
