Medicaid Planning & VA Planning

One of the scariest thoughts by parents and loved ones of seniors is that the expense of long-term care will exhaust the person’s assets (i.e., you outlive your money). The elder law attorneys at Bryson Law Firm assist families in understanding the eligibility requirements for nursing home Medicaid and Veterans Administration (“VA”) benefits. We then make a recommendation and assist with implementing a practical plan that considers a person’s assets, income, intentions, family dynamics, and care expense.
