Are you faced with the devastating costs of long term care? If you are a loved one are in need of nursing home care, you know that Medicare does not pay for long term nursing home care, and that you will be expected to pay out of your own pocket, at an average cost of over $6,000 to $9,000 per month. At these prices, it's no wonder that most families find their savings drained within the first year.
When it comes to paying for nursing home care, many people don't realize that Medicaid planning is an option. Unfortunately, too many people end up paying for the nursing home out of their savings, finally qualifying for Medicaid assistance once their money runs out. With proper planning, however, we can help protect your savings while still qualifying for Medicaid assistance.
We are proud to bring Medicaid planning, elder law, and estate planning services to the rural areas of Virginia which have traditionally been underserved in these areas. We aim to protect families from losing their homes and life savings to the costs of nursing home care. Jeanne M. Hepler was named a "Go To" Lawyer for Elder Law in 2021 by the Virginia Lawyers Weekly.
