Dispelling the Myths of Government Benefits for Long Term Care

This workshop focuses on the myths you hear at the nursing home and at the bank about qualifying for Medicaid and the Aid and Attendance Veterans Pension to pay for long term care. We all know that 24/7 home care, assisted living, and nursing home care are outrageously expensive. Before you begin a strategy for saving money and qualifying for government benefits, it is important to understand mistakes that cause penalties, disqualification, and trouble with adult protective services. You should expect your attorney to take the time to understand your loved one’s medical condition, countable assets, and family dynamics and then counsel you on all the options available under the law.

This presentation is designed to teach attendees:

  • Common myths spread by nursing home caregivers and bankers;
  • Penalties that result from mistaken strategies for qualifying for government benefits.
