Concerned About Paying for Long-Term Care as You Age? We Can Help
It doesn’t seem right that you can work hard your whole life, raise a family, and stay out of debt, and you still can’t afford the nursing home or home care you or your spouse need as you age. Unfortunately, this is the reality for many senior citizens in New York. While you have relied on Medicare for most of your healthcare costs, Medicare will not pay for a nursing home, so your only option is to use up your life savings—which will go quickly because of the high cost of care. However, if you have planned ahead with the help of an experienced elder law attorney, you won’t have to worry quite so much about facing this difficult situation.
