Long-term Care Planning

Many people are worried that if a spouse needs more care than they can give, will they lose everything to pay for care. Is that so or are there other options?

The answer is yes if you plan properly and the earlier, the better. There are a number of planning options available to spouses of nursing home residents to protect their financial well-being while qualifying their ill spouse for MassHealth coverage of nursing home fees.

We offer a comprehensive plan for the family who wants to protect the family home and other assets in the event of a potential nursing home stay. This type of planning is appropriate for the family who is concerned about nursing home costs, but will likely not need such care in the next 5 years.
