As you plan for your senior years, you should be able to do so with confidence and excitement, not fear and uncertainty. When you work with the elder care attorneys at Alperin Law, we make sure you have the documents, trusts, directives, and support in place to ensure a smooth transition into your golden years. You should not have to worry about losing all your assets to a nursing home or having a stranger make decisions for you if you are unable to do so. Our attorneys have the experience to foresee all the possibilities and to put a plan in place to make sure you are prepared for whatever may happen to you or your spouse.

How Our Elder Law Attorneys Can Help

Whatever your needs are as you look towards the future for yourself or your parents, Alperin Law has the legal services to support you. We have seen what can happen when couples are not prepared for the unexpected, and we work hard to plan for any eventuality. Along with full-service estate planning, we offer special services for seniors that take into account health considerations, a variety of benefit programs, asset protection, and much more. Our elder care services include the following:

Life Care Planning

We offer this unique service to clients facing a variety of age-related concerns. While our attorneys will see to the estate planning and asset protection piece, our elder care coordinator will assess your needs for care and identify the benefits and resources that can help you. Our Life Care Planning team will even help you sell your house and find the perfect assisted-living situation for you or your loved one. We don’t know of any other attorneys in Virginia who offer this holistic approach to elder law, and we are proud to lead the way.

Medicaid Planning 

You may be surprised to learn that you could qualify for Medicaid to pay for a nursing home or other long-term care facility, regardless of your earnings and assets. Alperin Law can help you navigate the Medicaid process as we develop a plan that will allow you to afford a quality nursing home while protecting the assets you have worked so hard for. With advance planning, we can avoid some challenges, so we encourage you to talk to us sooner rather than later. But we can also help out in a crisis, so wherever you are in the process, give us a call.

Veterans Pension Benefits 

The Aid & Attendance benefit can help eligible veterans pay for in-home care, assisted living, or nursing home costs. It is a pension benefit, so veterans don’t need to have a service-related injury to qualify. However, they must meet certain income and medical requirements. Unfortunately, this can be a much more complicated process than it should be, but our experienced VA-accredited attorneys know how to navigate the system to prove eligibility and get you the veterans pension benefits you deserve.

Long-Term Care Planning 

Long-term care is expensive, and it can quickly drain your finances. But with some advance planning, our elder law attorneys can use the multiple tools at their disposal to protect your life savings from unforeseen healthcare costs and catastrophic events. Our goal is to ensure the best possible care for our clients—all while protecting the estate for his or her family.

You never know what the future holds, but when you sit down with our elder law team, we can make sure you are prepared for anything. We are passionate about providing top-notch services to people who have worked hard their entire lives and deserve quality healthcare and financial security as they look towards the future.
