Elder Law

Long Term Care Issues, Medicaid, Trusts, Nursing Home Care, Preservation of Asssets

As America's population ages and the costs of providing care for the elderly rise, both federal and state governments have increased their involvement in the way these costs are borne. The resulting regulations affect individuals and families who are in the difficult process of making decisions about long-term care, Medicaid trusts, nursing home care, and the preservation of assets. There is no arm of the law that is changing faster, or that has a greater impact on a family's financial well-being.

At Delafield, McGee & Jones, P.C., we assist our clients in evaluating their family situation to minimize the impact of the regulations in effect at the time. Some of these decisions include asset transfers, nursing home selection, and assistance with DPW forms. To learn more about Elder Law in the Commonwealth of PA, please click here.
