Nursing Home and Long-Term Care Planning

When a person is aging and no longer able to take care of his or her day-to-day needs, the right decision for long-term care must be made. Often, senior citizens do not want to accept the fact that they can no longer care for themselves. They may feel that they are a burden to their relatives and that they are failing themselves. Attorney Robert L. Michaels is experienced in helping seniors and their families plan effectively during these difficult times. His skills, background and real world experience are essential when helping families make these difficult decisions. Nursing home care is not the answer for all seniors. At the law firm of Robert L. Michaels, he looks closely at your particular situation, examines all the available options, and considers the best strategy of action for everyone involved. In some situations, the best action is in-home care, in which the senior can retain the lifestyle he or she has become accustomed to. In such circumstances, he will arrange for the best type of in-home care possible. However, if the senior’s current situation necessitates a move to an assisted living facility, he will help families make those arrangements. Similarly, if the senior’s physical, emotional, or psychological needs require a move to a nursing home, he will help you find the home that best provides for the needs of your aging loved one.

When considering long-term care options, many people are concerned with the financial costs associated with care. At Robert L. Michaels law firm, his priority is to help seniors and their families find the coverage of funds necessary to pay for the cost of care, while protecting their home and retaining their assets for the future benefit of the spouse or children.

In addition, he has experience handling medical benefit package disputes, questions about veterans benefits, Social Security benefit concerns, and the application or appeals for medical assistance.
