Long-Term Care Planning

Long-Term Care Planning Attorneys

The term "long-term care planning" is a broad description of techniques to protect the family's assets in the event either spouse should be admitted to a nursing home. This technique could involve using irrevocable Medicaid trusts and waiting out a so-called five-year look-back period, suggesting long-term care insurance, or using the community spouse resource allowance and an annuity for so-called excess resources.
