Medicaid & Veteran Benefits presented by KC Elder Law - Tuesday, August 21

Posted: Fri, 08/17/2018 - 4:11pm

HOW TO GET MEDICAID COVERAGE FOR YOUR ASSISTED LIVING OR NURSING HOME CARE...

WITHOUT SELLING YOUR HOME OR LEAVING YOUR FAMILY WITHOUT A DIME!

 One of the biggest fears that many people have today is the fear of having their life savings wiped out if they end up in a nursing home. What a shame to see someone's life savings of 30, 40, or 50 years wiped out in a matter of months. Whether you or a family member is in a crisis or not, it is important that you understand what you can do to protect your hard-earned assets! Most of the public does not yet realize that the laws on asset protection and long-term care planning have changed. It is extremely important that you know about these changes and how they may affect your long-term planning! A brand new, free informational workshop hosted by local Elder Law Attorney, William G. Hammond with KC Elder Law, will be held:

Tuesday, August 21st 6pm-7pm at

Evergreen Community of Johnson County, 11875 S. Sunset Drive, Olathe, KS 66061

 


At this meeting you will discover:

  • How to avoid having your life savings wiped out by a nursing home spend down.
  • How the new law restricts protection of assets and the steps you should take now to protect your loved ones.
  • The asset protection language that most people don't have in their power of attorney documents, which can help protect their life's savings.
  • Veteran's benefits that most people know nothing about.
  • How Medicaid works and the steps you need to take now to protect your family under the new rules.
  • How to find the right Senior Care Community and what to expect in the process.
  • How to get good care at a Senior Care Community.
  • Senior Care options for independence; planning for today and the future. 

Attendance at this brand new meeting is free, but seating is limited. You can reserve your spot by calling 913-338-5713.  Special bonus- we will also be distributing a FREE copy of "The Consumer's Guide to Medicaid Planning and Division of Assets."  (Limit 2 guides per household)
