Asset Protection

Asset protection is a legal strategy that allows an individual to maintain her assets while also being eligible for long-term care.  Today, conservative estimates indicate that nursing home costs can be as much as $250 per day. In order to qualify for Medicaid assistance, people are often forced to first liquidate their assets and use those funds, losing a lifetime of accrued assets in just a few months.  The Law Office of Heather L. Smith can help you create a plan that will allow you to receive the care you need without losing everything you have.
