Florida, like many other states, offers Medicaid/Medicare services for low income or elderly individuals to help offset costs of nursing homes, medical care, and more. In many ways this can be a benefit to those who receive it, but if not properly understood and applied it can become a financial burden. Our team of elder law lawyers in Florida is prepared to help with any issues you may run into. We can also help you determine which of your assets are exempt from Florida Medicaid income requirements.
Elder Law FAQ
While it may be tempting to wait to hire an elder law attorney in Florida until it’s time to move your loved one into a care facility, it’s important that you consider the advantages of hiring an elder law attorney before that time comes. By acting early on you can ensure that there’s time to take advantage of all the resources available to your loved one. You can also ensure that you have time to vet and hire the right attorney who has your family’s best interests in mind. The sooner the issues are dealt with, the sooner you and your loved one can have peace of mind.
The best way to ensure that your elderly parent’s assets are protected is to hire an estate planning attorney to work with them to create various trusts that protect their assets from creditors. Our team at RAK Law Firm also offers will and trust planning services and are happy to help you through this process.
If your elderly parents have lost mental sharpness or the ability to make informed financial decisions for themselves, it’s possible they may benefit from having one of their adult children assume power of attorney on their behalf. Our team can help walk you through the process and provide guidance for both you and your parents on the matter.
