Elder Law

Nearly 60% of all Americans spend their final years in a nursing home and the numbers are increasing. Yet, few Americans can afford to pay the high cost of long term care for a loved one. Many families are surprised to learn that Medicare will not pay for their loved one’s long-term care.

At Coenson Law, we help families plan for future long-term care needs, including preservation of assets and exploring the alternative ways to pay for long-term care. Such planning is essential to prevent one spouse’s illness from depleting assets, leaving the other spouse at home with few resources on which to live. Planning also involves naming individuals you trust to manage your finances and health care in the event you are unable to make decisions for yourself. Pre-planning involves the creation of advance directives or, in lieu of pre-planning, a guardianship may be necessary.
