When someone needs long-term care, it is understood that family members focus on making sure they receive the best care. With the help of an elder law attorney, this can be done in a way that protects the assets a person has worked so hard for, so he or she can leave a legacy for heirs rather than spend it all on the costs of long-term care.
During the time when decisions regarding long-term care are being made for an ill spouse, it is not uncommon to overlook the financial well-being of the community spouse. With the proper planning, we at Angiuli & Gentile, LLP can create a situation where the well spouse, a/k/a the community spouse, can maintain the standard of living he or she was used to while his or her partner receives long-term care.
