Long-Term Care Planning

Long-term care planning typically refers to a concerned individual's or family's preparation for the time when a senior loved one may be without the ability to perform activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, mobility, eating and others.

No one wants to move from their home unless absolutely necessary. At Street & Ellis, P.A., in Dover, we have helped so many families with this challenge that we know what financial and other types of assistance are available.

Invariably, the cost of care can be overwhelming unless a full and comprehensive plan is devised. Protecting some assets may be a part of such a plan but it is never all of the plan.

With the help we provide, long-term care can be supplied in a variety of settings — an assisted living facility we may recommend, a family home, residential care facility, nursing home or adult foster homes. Often late planning, even if not until after admission into a facility, can save a significant part of your estate to help ensure there is sufficient money to pay for the expenses of the spouse or special needs child at home. Inadequate planning may leave them penniless.

At Street & Ellis, P.A., we clearly explain the benefits and potential drawbacks of every option, listen carefully as you describe your goals and generally guide you to choices that address your unique situation.
