New York City & Long Island Elder Law Representation

Our firm devotes a considerable amount of time on issues that affect the growing aging population. Elder Law representation involves many different areas. These areas include planning for retirement planning; planning for “In-home” and nursing home care; Medicaid planning; trust and estate planning and administration; and the prevention of elder abuse or neglect.

Medicaid Planning for “In-Home” Care

In order to be eligible obtain Medicaid coverage for “in-home” home care, the applicant’s income and resources must not exceed Medicaid guidelines. Our firm handles Medicaid planning and applications for “in-home” nursing care.

Medicaid Planning for Nursing Home Care

When it comes to Medicaid planning for nursing home care, many people have heard of the 5-¬year “look-back period”. They worry that planning done less than 5 years before a person needs such Medicaid benefits won't be beneficial. While Medicaid planning done 5 years in advance is better than planning done 5 minutes in advance, it’s never too late! Our firm handles Medicaid planning and applications for nursing home care.

Estate Planning

Estate Planning usually involves the preparation of a Will or the establishment of a Revocable Living Trust or an Irrevocable Living Trust, as well as the preparation of a Durable General Power of Attorney, a Health Care Proxy, a HIPPA form and Living Will. These documents need to be drafted according to the individual needs of our clients.

Preventing Elder Abuse or Neglect

There are many ways to prevent elder abuse and neglect. Most solutions center around the need for “proper planning.” Proper planning involves the need to understand the law and to “think ahead”. This planning may include the establishment of a guardianship for an incapacitated person, or properly-drawn Durable General Powers of Attorney and Health Care Proxies.
