Paying for Nursing Home Care

In order to qualify for Medicaid assistance with the expense of nursing home care you must have exhausted the majority of your assets. Your cash assets cannot exceed $2,000, but your homestead real estate equity is allowed up to $560,000. This discrepancy in allowances means that you can protect a significant portion of your assets with proper planning.
At our office, we use ‘lady bird deeds’ and other legal means to protect you from Medicaid liens or the supervision of the probate court. If you or a family member are facing these issues contact us for an appointment. In this area of the law, pre-planning is critical.
