Long-Term care planning

Caring for a loved one shouldn't cost a lifetime of savings

Nursing homes in northwest Pennsylvania can cost $80,000 a year or more. When faced with long-term care for themselves or a spouse, seniors can watch their life savings disappear before their eyes.

What many people do not know is that there are legal steps they can take to protect a substantial portion, and sometimes even all, of their assets from the cost of long-term care, even if their loved one is already in a nursing home.

At Scales Law Offices, LLC, we use a thorough understanding of the law as it applies to seniors to help them protect their life savings from the cost of long-term care.

Our Asset Protection Package includes:

  • Development of an Asset Protection Plan, designed to protect the maximum amount of our clients' assets, as allowed by law, from the cost of long-term care.
  • A close partnership with our clients for as long as it takes to ensure that the Asset Protection Plan is successfully carried out.
  • Preparation of any legal documents such as Wills, powers of attorney, deeds, or trusts, necessary to carry out the Plan.
  • Where appropriate, preparing and filing the Medicaid application, including all required documentation, and acting as our client's advocate with the Medicaid office.

More information about planning for long-term care is available on our RESOURCES page.

Please CONTACT US if you would like to schedule a consultation.

In order to properly access your situation, we ask all prospective clients to complete a confidential questionnaire prior to their appointment. You may print out a questionnaire by clicking the button at the top right of the screen. Please return the completed questionnaire to our Titusville office one week prior to your appointment via fax, email, regular mail or by stopping by our office.
