Parents want to take care of their children. This is generally true regardless of how old their children are. Even when the Georgia parent is past retirement age and beginning to become worried about Medicaid planning and the possibility of nursing home care being required, the parent will often attempt to find a way to both take care of his/her Medicaid concerns and also make sure that the children receive their anticipated inheritance.
Like parents everywhere, most Georgia parents will do whatever they have to in order to make sure their children grow up safe, happy and loved. They want their children to have all the opportunities available to them as they grow. For parents of children with special needs, this usually takes on a new meaning. Providing the best life possible usually requires some special needs planning, which may involve a guardianship.
As someone who may need a caregiver, you want to make sure that you are provided for while not placing too much of a burden on your loved ones. You want to stay in your home in old age, but you also realize how restrictive that can be for caregivers you're related to.
The country is in the middle of a national health crisis, and the nation's elderly are part of the most vulnerable population. Atlanta nursing homes are taking drastic measures to try to protect their residents, but that means that family members are not able to visit and check in on their loved ones right now. Many people are worried that their loved ones will not receive the care they planned for over the years.
As the population ages, more people will begin looking for a place to receive help with daily activities and medical needs. With different levels of nursing home care available, it could take some time to choose the right place. Atlanta has a variety of places for every income and need level, and choosing the right home requires careful consideration.
Like other Atlanta residents, you may not have known that your estate may be responsible for paying back certain federal benefits you receive at the end of your life. For example, if your estate is valued at more than $25,000, you owned a home at the time of your death and you received Medicaid benefits, the state of Georgia may be required to put a lien on your home in order to recover the monetary value of those benefits. With the right planning, it may be possible to avoid this eventuality.
