There are several types of long-term care facilities, ranging from hospital-based skilled nursing facilities to custodial care facilities or nursing homes. The goal of each one is the same — to provide an elderly person with the personal care, supervision and medical assistance they need.
Whether due to disability or illness, many elderly individuals will at some point require long-term care. Because of the potential for financial burden, it is important to begin planning for yourself or a loved one as soon as possible. Along with offering financial protection, long-term care planning ensures you have sufficient options to choose from when needed.
What You Need to Consider When Long-Term Care Planning
Long term care planning involves answering several important questions such as:
- How can you begin saving for long term care?
- How will you pay for long-term care?
- Do you qualify for Medicaid?
- Which type of care do you prefer and can you afford it?
- Will you be able to afford in-home care if needed or desired?
At MPL Law Firm, we can help bring peace of mind to you and your family by helping you answer these questions and guiding you every step of the way.
