The high cost of long-term care — well over $100,000 annually in many instances — is a primary concern of individuals as they attempt to protect their life savings in the later stages of life. Navigating the requirements and restrictions that are tied to government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid generates one question after another. The experienced elder law attorneys at Leisawitz Heller will help you answer them with confidence.

Our firm's lawyers who work on these cases average more than 20 years of elder law experience. Attorney William R. Blumer is a certified elder law attorney, a designation that is bestowed upon a select group of Pennsylvania attorneys by the Board of Certification of the National Elder Law Foundation (NELF). Certified elder law attorneys have an in-depth knowledge of the legal issues that impact the elderly and adults with disabilities. If you work with a certified elder law attorney, you are assured that he or she is committed to maintaining and improving proficiency in elder law through continuing legal education and regularly handling elder law cases.

Medicaid Planning Protects Your Assets For Future Generations

We help families understand their options and assess the important aspects of long-term care. Our clients rely on us to provide clarity to complex issues such as:

The Time To Act Is Now

Too often, individuals and families wait too long to address the important issues of Medicaid planning. As a result, they are not able to fully protect their savings. In order to qualify for Medicaid, individuals with substantial savings cannot have recently transferred assets.

By working with us long before long-term care is necessary, our clients are able to make use of trusts and other estate planning tools to successfully protect their assets and pass them to children and grandchildren. More importantly, they are able to use both government benefits and their own savings to enhance the quality of their lives and the care they receive. If you are retired and concerned about impending costs of long-term care or wish to help your parents protect their life savings, call or use our online contact form to schedule a consultation.

Many of our elder law services are provided for a flat fee or flexible payment plan. We work with clients throughout Greater Reading and across southeastern Pennsylvania.
