Long-Term Care in a Nursing Home
Elder law focuses on helping seniors prepare for and cope with the changes that come with growing older. It often involves helping seniors and their families find ways to pay for long-term care in a nursing home without losing most if not all of their assets. When you consider that the majority of seniors will find themselves in a nursing home at some point in their lives, Medicare will not pay for long-term nursing home care, and the average cost of such care in California is around $8,000 per month, it is not surprising that many middle-class families lose their life savings within one year of moving into a nursing home.
