As the population continues to live longer, healthier, fuller lives, more people find that they need to consider long-term care options for a loved one. Long-term care options have advanced over the years.
While certain conditions may require residency in a nursing home or assisted living facility, many elderly individuals are continuing to enjoy the independence of living in their own home (with the assistance of full- or part-time in-home care or home health care). Unfortunately, the financial burdens of such care often overpower the peace of mind that comes with knowing a loved one is safe and receiving appropriate care.

Medicaid Benefits Can Cover In-Home Care
A component of health care reform is focused on broadening Medicaid coverage to keep people in their homes. Individuals who have suffered a serious injury, who are disabled or who are receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) frequently require extensive care to remain in the home. This care can be covered by Medicaid, once you qualify and apply for Medicaid benefits.
If you are concerned about how you will pay for in-home care, the Nawrocki Center can help. Whether planning for the coming of age of your autistic child, preparing for the homecoming of a loved one who has suffered a serious injury or planning for your own potential future health care needs, we can help you devise a strategy that maximizes protection of assets and family legacies, while also enabling you or your disabled loved one to become eligible for Medicaid when necessary.
