Our Elder Law Practice Areas
Attorney Bobbi L. Meloro can competently and compassionately assist you with the following:
- Medicaid planning, family asset protection planning and Medicaid applications. The costs of long term care can be catastrophic, often reaching upwards of $100,000 per year. Medicaid can help to pay for the costs of healthcare and institutional care in the event a person needs nursing home care and has specific financial or/and medical needs. By planning for Medicaid now, you can preserve and protect your life savings and assets and understand the qualifications and eligibility criteria, making your Medicaid application a less confusing process.
- VA Aid & Attendance Benefits. The Veterans Aid and Attendance benefit is a type of pension offered by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs to wartime veterans over the age of 65 and their surviving spouses who require assistance with their activities of daily living. This is a non-service connected pension (meaning that the need for care does not have to result from one’s military service) which helps offset the high costs of long-term elder care, such as paying for assisted living facilities, home care aids, adult daycare, or skilled nursing.
