As you approach your golden years, your sights are likely set on ensuring you’ll have the funds needed to survive (and probably also travel!). One thing that you may have failed to factor in is long-term care. In today’s society, seniors are living longer lives, and many are entering senior-living or assisted-living facilities in the latter half.

In Pennsylvania, places like this cost a significant amount of money. Because of this, it is essential to plan ahead and obtain financial assistance through Medicaid. Unfortunately, understanding and qualifying for Medicaid can be complicated and confusing, which is why it’s important to enlist the help of our experienced Slatington Medicaid planning attorney who can simplify the steps and guide you through the process so that both you and your loved ones can have peace of mind.

Why Should I Pursue Medicaid Planning?

Many senior Pennsylvania residents, along with their families, aren’t usually aware of how high the cost of long-term care really is. The average cost of living in a PA assisted living facility is $3,600 per month, (over $43,000 a year). The cost of living in a PA nursing home is even more expensive, with semi-private rooms costing $108,000+ per year, and a private room costing $117,000 annually. 

After working hard all your life so that you can enjoy retirement, you likely weren’t banking on covering such a significant cost. However, in today’s day and age, those turning 65 have a 70% chance of needing some type of long-term care services in their remaining years. Though there is a possibility that this might not be you, is it really something you want to take your chances on? You might realize that you need long-term care when it’s too late to qualify for Medicaid, and your life savings (that you planned to leave behind for your family) will be eaten up quickly by the costs.

Another factor to consider is your loved ones. If you fail to plan ahead now and cannot afford care, they might be the ones to bear the financial burden to ensure that you have what you need. Medicaid is a government program that can help you cover a significant amount of your long-term care, and prevent you and your family members from financial jeopardy. However, it has strict eligibility requirements. There is only so much in assets that you can have while still remaining eligible for this type of government funding, which can be hard to understand. That’s where our Slatington Medicaid planning attorney comes in!

*We highly recommend Joshua Daly for Elder Law, wills, etc. This is something that people don’t know what can happen when your parents pass away or what to do. Josh helps prevent as much as you legally can the home and assets being taken by elder care home and/or govt.
What a great experience on a subject people don’t like to talk about but is so important. Josh makes this process pleasant. We are recommending Josh to all our friend and family and friends. Everyone should get their ducks in a row. I am glad we met Josh & finally did this!
Thank you Josh
