Complicated Issues Confront Seniors

In the next 20 years there is going to be a huge transfer of wealth, the question is are you going to transfer that wealth to your family or to a nursing home? Elder Care Law of Kentucky will work with you and your loved ones to provide professional elder law and estate planning services throughout Kentucky. Our goal is to help protect not just your money, but what matters most in your life - quality of life for you, your loved ones and peace of mind.

We will help you plan for events that happen as you and your parents grow older.

Legal issues facing seniors:

  • Protection and preservation of assets from catastrophic nursing home costs - statistics show that most seniors will use institutional care (i.e. Nursing home care) during their lifetimes
  • Medicaid planning to lessen countable assets and qualify sooner for benefits
  • Tax considerations for income tax, capital gains and gift tax
  • VA benefits that may be available to veterans and their surviving spouses

Where to Start with Elder Planning

Estate planning, trusts, government benefits, guardianships and conservators

Many adults care for their parents in some way, and for some this includes financial responsibility. There are many options we can discuss with you including:

  • Setting up a Living Trust
  • Planning for a trust administrator in the event of your death
  • Planning for elder care, in-home or live-in care or nursing home

It is ideal to work with an experienced elder law attorney and Hargrove Firm can ensure that all your needs are met in this area. Including: positioning your assets for Medicaid eligibility, review all important estate planning documents such as wills, trusts and powers of attorney, protection review for all assets, long-term care insurance review.
