Getting old is relatively simple. The laws and decisions are not. Casteel & Carson will guide you through the maze of difficult decisions involving retirement, estate and tax planning, and long-term care planning. We assist our clients with legal and tax issues involved in Medicare coverage, nursing-home care, in-home care, powers of attorney, medical directives, and other legal matters. Some aspects to consider are:
- Medicaid planning - State-government-run, this federal program provides health care for individuals with low-income. This planning can be quite complex as the rules for eligibility change from year-to-year. To make sure you are receiving the benefits you are entitled to, please consult with Casteel & Carson on your current situation and any changes that can be made to improve your benefits.
- Elder abuse – typically occurs in nursing homes or assisted living facilities by unskilled or poorly paid staff. Without closely followed procedures or documented inspections, significant harm or even death may happen to clients. Casteel & Carson will take the appropriate legal actions to ensure fair compensation for all violations and can assist in making recommendations on whether facilities provide the right care for your loved ones.
