Why Do I Need a Medicaid Attorney for Nursing Home Costs?

Michigan, known for its great lakes and industrious spirit, harbors an often overlooked challenge for its aging population — the staggering cost of nursing home care. As individuals start to age, they're met with a harsh economic reality: that their life's savings, carefully nurtured over decades, might swiftly vanish into the coffers of long-term care facilities.

For seniors and their families, nursing home costs aren't just a threat; they're a cold financial front advancing upon their assets with an unpredictable timeline.

If you're in a crisis...

  • your loved one is in rehab and you're being told it's time for them to leave, but you know that taking them home is dangerous for them and impossible for you

  • the nursing home has told you it's time to contact an elder law attorney

  • you want them to stay in the facility but you don't know how you're going to pay for it

  • your loved one is home but the caregiver is burning out and can no longer handle the pressures of the care, or just cannot do it anymore

  • you have had to call an ambulance or take your loved one to the hospital more than twice in three months

    .....Medicaid planning is for you.
