Our Syracuse Attorneys Help Plan For Nursing Home Care
Custodial nursing home care cost averages around $7500 a month in central New York, and it is estimated that nearly 50 percent of elderly Americans will spend some time in a nursing home. At $7500 a month, it would not take very long for most people’s life savings to dwindle away. We are dedicated to helping assure that people in need of nursing home care do not lose the wealth they have spent a lifetime creating.
Founding attorney Steve McMahon opened the McMahon Law Firm in 1992 with the needs of people like his parents in mind. Today, we are committed to treating each of our clients with the kind of respect and dignity you would want to be given to your parents. Our entire practice is devoted to elder law issues, such as securing Medicaid to pay for nursing home expenses.
Medicaid is a government program designed to pay for nursing home expenses for people below a certain asset level. We have been handling Medicaid eligibility issues for over twelve years. We have the experience to structure your assets in a way that will make you eligible to have your nursing home expenses covered by Medicaid.
Failing to plan for nursing home expenses can cost you and your heirs the wealth you have spent a lifetime creating. While you may have had a will drafted, it will not protect your wealth from being depleted by nursing home expenses. A Syracuse, New York, lawyer experienced in Medicaid law can prepare you for nursing home care costs while preserving a majority of your wealth in trusts, deeds, and directed gifting of assets.
We have helped hundreds of individuals and families protect their life savings from the high cost of nursing home care. If you (or a member of your family) are in a nursing home or may need future care, please contact a lawyer at the McMahon Law Firm. We represent clients throughout upstate New York, including Onondaga, Cayuga, Oswego and Oneida counties, as well as the cities of Syracuse, Camillus and Auburn.
