What Is Included in Long-Term Care?
Long-term care involves a range of services designed to address your personal care and health to enable you to live in a safe and independent manner when you are no longer able to do so on your own. Long-term care can be provided in different contexts, such as in a nursing home or community residence.
Long-term care is expensive, though, and it can be overwhelming to think about the costs of elderly care in your future. Will your retirement be enough to cover these costs? Are you eligible for Medicaid? Our Macon elder law lawyer at Jen Haskins Law can take a closer look at your unique situation to guide you towards a feasible long-term care plan.
Long-Term Care Planning
Every person has different needs for long-term care. To evaluate how much and what type of long-term care you need, you may consider the following factors in your life:
- Age – the older you are, the likelier you may need some form of long-term care support
- Marital status – single individuals may need care from a paid provider as they live alone
- Health and family history – your medical history could help you plan for what to expect regarding your healthcare needs as you age
Some examples of things you might want to consider in your long-term care plan are:
- Senior transportation services – e.g., for commuting to medical appointments and other places in the community
- Homemaker and personal care services – e.g., bathing and dressing, meal preparation, household chores
- Medicaid – benefits can cover medical expenses like nursing home care, hospital bills, prescriptions, vision and dental care, Medicare premiums, and other needs
An experienced Macon long-term care lawyer can help you build a thorough plan to look after your needs in your elderly years. They can also help you devise a strategy for paying for this long-term care, depending on your financial situation and the services you elect to use. Common ways to fund long-term care are:
- Personal funds (e.g., income, pension plans, savings)
- Government health insurance benefits (e.g., Medicaid)
- Veterans’ benefits
- Long-term care insurance
If you do not immediately qualify for Medicaid due to your income level, you may still be eligible after creating a Miller Trust. Learn more about Medicaid eligibility here.
