"Planning is unnecessary - the nursing home covers everything" ... FALSE!
By shielding assets and income, we can help ensure that married clients protect their spouse at home against impoverishment. For unmarried clients, the attorney should ensure that they have rainy day funds to supplement their quality of life for the rest of their lives. The fact is that nursing homes do not cover all of the needs of the elder. Those elders and their families in nursing homes who have planned ahead enjoy a much higher quality of life than those who failed to save assets.
Too often, elders and their families believe that they need to spend-down all their money on the nursing home before the elder may qualify for Medicaid benefits.
