Placing a loved one in a nursing facility can be one of the most difficult decisions a family can make. Then, when confronted with nursing home bills in excess of $10,000 a month, families are baffled about how they can pay for this care.
This can add stress and anxiety to caregivers and family at home.
If you are concerned about losing your life’s savings or your home to the cost of long-term care, or if someone you love is facing a nursing home stay, or is already in a nursing home, Marshall, Parker & Weber can help.
How We Can Help
At Marshall, Parker & Weber, we have helped thousands of families navigate through this maze and provide peace of mind. We explain in easy-to-understand language your options and then help you every step of the way.
Through our Asset Protection & Medicaid services, we:
Identify ways for your loved one to receive care they need, whether it is in a nursing home, personal care home, LIFE program, Pennsylvania Department of Aging Waiver, adult day care or through in-home services.
Explore your family’s payment options for long-term care including Medicare coverage, long-term care Insurance, Veteran’s Benefits, private payment or Medicaid (Medical Assistance) qualification.
Develop a plan to protect your family’s assets and qualify your loved one for Medicaid.
Protect most or all of the assets of a healthy spouse still living at home using planning tools such as a highly-specialized Medicaid Qualifying Annuity or commonly-misunderstood community spouse protections.
Ensure the home is protected from a Medicaid Estate Recovery claim or, if your family sells a home, provide additional planning options to protect those proceeds.
Give your family the gift of peace of mind and security. When you hire Marshall, Parker & Weber, we handle the paperwork and we make the phone calls. We give you the time and energy you need to focus on what is important – your family.
“My wife and I were uncertain of what to do when her deteriorating situation resulted in her being admitted to a nursing home. We knew very little of the issues that could develop and especially the financing required, which was unplanned for by me. Fortunately for us, your office was recommended. Even more fortunately, Tammy Weber was selected as our elder law attorney. Over a series of meetings, she thoroughly explained the entire process. Her presentation of the details in legal requirements, the finances charted out, our questions answered without hesitation and her confident friendly manner, gave me assurance that she absolutely knew her profession. Our trust in attorney Tammy Weber was completely validated. She did outstanding work, and we are completely satisfied with her performance."
