"Failing to plan is planning to fail" - this is a common phrase that many of our readers in Georgia have likely heard before. While we all do our best to make plans and follow through with them when it comes to important aspects of our lives, sometimes we overlook areas that may be more important than we think. For instance, what is your nursing home care and Medicaid plan, should the need for these services arise?
Well, for most people, the answer is probably "I don't have a plan." And, many of our readers will likely think, "Why should I?" After all, no one expects to be in a position in which extended, long-term care is needed in a nursing home or other assisted-care facility. However, the need for such a plan may be more pressing than many people realize.
Many of our readers will probably begin to think about these issues more as they get older. That is when many people begin to craft estate plans, which deal extensively with financial matters. In such a phase of planning, it is important to consider the costs of nursing home care and how Medicaid can factor into a plan to pay for those costs.
At our law firm, we do our best to help our clients in Georgia who are giving serious thought to the following concerns: How can I protect my assets? Who will make decisions for me if I am unable to do so? How can government benefits help with the costs? Sometimes the answers to these questions are not entirely straightforward. Many people would benefit from getting more information about their own unique circumstances. It may help to review the nursing home and Medicaid planning section of our law firm's website.
