Still Have Questions?

It’s not uncommon to have questions or want to know more.
Here are a few of the questions your family, friends, and neighbors may have asked us.

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.

Now is a great time to start.
