Our Planning Process
If you have a loved one in a nursing home the challenge quickly becomes how to pay for the nursing home care without going broke. With proper planning and the right legal strategies, it is possible to qualify for financial assistance to pay the nursing home without losing your home and life savings. These are very important goals. It is our fundamental belief that you are most likely to accomplish your goals by following a carefully thought out “plan.” Our unique planning process was specifically designed to develop and implement customized Asset Protection Plans for our clients, utilizing proven asset protection strategies with a track record of success. The steps in our planning process include: 

  • Initial Meeting – Meeting to establish goals, evaluate your case, review our planning process and explain our fees
  • Case Workup – We collect information relating to your financial affairs to establish an in-depth understanding of your unique needs. We then identify and examine the planning options and legal strategies that are available. Then we study and analyze all the information and develop recommendations designed to achieve your goals.
  • Strategy Meeting - Meeting to explain the planning options and legal strategies that are available and to present our recommendations to you for review and approval. We will also offer our advice and guidance to assist you with critical decision making.  
  • Document Preparation – We will prepare a customized Asset Protection Plan to document all “actions” to be undertaken. We will also prepare any necessary legal documents, such as wills, financial powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney, living wills, etc….
  • Delivery Meeting – Meeting to review and finalize the Asset Protection Plan and to sign any legal documents that were prepared. 
  • Implementation – We will assist you in the implementation of the Asset Protection Plan to insure and verify the completion of all “actions” recommended in the Plan.  
  • Medicaid Application – We will apply for Medicaid benefits to cover the cost of your nursing home expenses as soon as eligibility is attained.
