Planning for long-term care is becoming more and more necessary due to longer life expectancies and the frequency of physical and mental impairments. Unfortunately, this is often a reality that many families are not prepared to face. Without careful and thoughtful preparation, long-term care can quickly deplete your finances and other assets that you have worked so hard to acquire and maintain. To ensure your estate and legacy are effectively protected, you should speak with a skilled long-term care planning lawyer about your options.
At Hegwood Law Group, we believe that when it comes to long-term care planning, quality of life is one of the most important issues to consider. Long-term care planning addresses not only how you will pay for the services you need but also how you want to be taken care of and by whom in the event that you become incapacitated.

The thought of planning for the future is overwhelming for many people. Our goal is to make the process as smooth as possible in order to give you the peace of mind that you need. You can plan for and protect your future in many ways:
Long-term care insurance
Nursing home Medicaid planning
Veterans assistance (VA) benefits
We know that you ultimately want to stay at home as long as possible. That is our goal for you as well. We encourage all of our clients to obtain long-term care insurance. If you cannot afford it, we will work to develop an asset protection plan to fit your needs. In some circumstances, the government will pay for long-term care, but under Texas law, an individual cannot have more than $2,000 in non-exempt assets to qualify. Contact Hegwood Law Group for an appointment to see if we can help you create an estate plan that will help you maximize your benefits.
