Need Home Care Support

Let Us Help You
Stay at Home

If you are looking for at-home support to avoid entering a long-term care facility, you may be eligible for the Ohio Medicaid PASSPORT Waiver or the Veteran Affairs Aid & Attendance benefit program. AlerStallings can help identify what’s available to you and complete a Level of Care Assessment. Both will aid in providing the care and comfort you’re seeking.

How We Can Help
You Stay Home

Staying at home may be more comforting, but it may also be more expensive. In fact, in some cases, it can be twice as expensive as a nursing home. Our team is here to help you find the resources that will allow you to stay at home as long as possible.

Understanding What’s Needed

You may be eligible for at-home support, but the path to getting that care can be challenging.

We have the experience that can help you manage a difficult situation and create ongoing plans, including:

PASSPORT Waiver Program

Get up to 20 hours of weekly at-home care.

Veterans Benefits Planning

Trust our VA-accredited attorneys to help you or your spouse receive over $2,000 each month for home care.

Power of Attorney

Be sure a person you trust has the ability to make important decisions for you if you can’t.

Updated Will

If it’s been a long time since you made your will or you used a template to do so, this is the time to make some updates.

Asset Protection Trust

This is one way to protect your assets, ensure they’re managed properly, and be certain they go to the right place.

IRA Tax Planning

If you have an IRA, you’ll want to consider how you can keep it from being lost to long-term care costs.

Nursing Home Protection

Manage long-term care events and protect your assets from high prices.

Medicaid Benefits

Get help with qualifications, assistance, and understanding waivers.

Want to Know More?

It’s not unusual to have questions about these kinds of topics. Here are a few of the questions we get asked most often. 

No, Medicare does not provide long-term care or custodial care.

Long term care planning combines the goals of estate planning along with the concerns of protecting and preserving assets from the very substantial costs of long-term care and/or expediting long-term care coverage through Medicaid planning. Essentially long-term care planning addresses “what will my care look like as I age and how will I pay for that care?”

These allow you to appoint someone you know and trust to make your personal health care and financial decisions even when you cannot. If you are incapacitated without these legal documents, then you and your family will be involved in a probate proceeding known as a guardianship and conservatorship. This is the court proceeding where a judge determines who should make these decisions for you under the ongoing supervision of the court.

Ohio intestacy laws dictate where your assets go. Not you, not your spouse and not your heirs. Don’t leave it up to Ohio, make sure you have a plan.

This is a great time to start planning
