There are many elder law issues that can be avoided with well thought out planning. For example, long term care is an issue that many people don’t consider until they are in need of it or right on the brink of being in need of it. Nursing homes can be very expensive. Often elderly individuals in need of nursing home care get assistance from Medicaid. However, if the individual owns a home, once the individual passes away, there may be a Medicaid lien on the home, and the potential heirs may not be able to inherit the home because of Medicaid recovery. If, however, you plan well enough in advance (at least five years prior to the need for long term care), you can avoid these pitfalls.
