          My wife and I went through these issues with my wife’s grandfather.  Only I couldn’t find anyone to help us with nursing home and Medicaid issues.  I now devote my entire practice to this area, so that others wouldn’t have to feel the frustrations that we did.  I started my elder care practice to deal with the long term care planning, be it at home, the assisted living facility, the nursing home and Medicaid issues.  And now my frustrations can be your good fortune.  That is because you can trade off our years of experience in dealing with Medicaid to help you and your family.

  • If my spouse goes into a nursing home, will I lose everything?
  • The nursing home is going to get my house?
  • I heard that I can’t give anything away before five years of going into the nursing home?
