Practicing Elder Law since I can't remember when!
No one’s first choice is to spend their final days in a nursing home, or to have a loved one enter a nursing home. Nonetheless, nursing homes are filled with people who do not want to be there because the care they need requires it. At the Law Office of Stephen G. Levy, our goal is to have all of the estate planning documents you need in place, such as a Power of Attorney; Health Care Proxy; Living Will; Last Will and Testament or Trust to provide for any contingency -- to have the tools in place to keep you at home for as long as possible, to protect as much of your assets as possible if you require long term nursing home care, and to make sure that upon death those assets are preserved from the unnecessary expenses of Federal Estate Taxes, legal fees and court costs.
