Elder Law

Illness and Incapacity
  • Incapacity can strike unexpectedly, and without warning.  Strokes, brain aneurysms, and other catastrophic medical events occur every minute of every day. 

  • Individuals with Dementia and Alzheimer's lose their capacity more slowly, and there is often time to plan in advance - if done soon enough.

  • What would happen if you, or your loved one, suddenly could not communicate, could not pay their bills, could not manage their affairs?

Asset Protection
  • Skilled Nursing Care in California now exceeds $10,000.00 per month.

  • What if you or your loved one needed skilled nursing care?

  • Are your assets protected from the high cost of care?  Or could you protect assets from State Recovery if skilled nursing care was needed?

  • Irrevocable Asset Protection Trusts and other "tools" are permitted in California, if created and funded properly, to hold and protect assets.

  • Get the Right Information so you can make a properly informed decision.

Long Term Care/Medi-Cal Qualification
  • Only Medi-Cal helps pay for long term skilled nursing care in California.

  • The Medi-Cal eligibility requirements are strict, and often confusing.

  • Planning takes some time, usually a few months, to properly and legally re-arrange assets so the patient is Medi-Cal eligible.  

  • Once Medi-Cal is approved, only a share of cost is often required.

  • An experienced Elder Law Attorney is invaluable in assisting with asset transfers, protecting the assets, and Medi-Cal eligibility. 

Get the RIGHT care.
  • Do you or your loved one require care?  Can they be left alone?  Are you dealing with dementia, Alzheimer's, frequent falls, or other issues?

  • Do you know the difference between care facilities, and the types of care available?

  • Do you know what insurance pays for, what you must pay for, and what Medi-cal (if eligible) will pay for?

  • Get the right information so you can make informed correct decisions.
