Americans are living longer than ever before. Unfortunately, many of us will eventually require long-term care, which can be very expensive. This explains why elder law is an increasingly important area of the law. It incorporates a wide range of practice areas, including long-term care planning, Medicaid planning, estate planning, veterans benefits planning and more. Our Ohio elder law lawyers have extensive experience in all of these areas, and are committed to helping seniors and the people who love them cope with the many changes that come with growing older.
One of the most important aspects of elder law is helping seniors pay for expensive long-term care. We don’t want to frighten you, but the following statistics speak volumes:
- Nearly three out of four people over the age of 65 will require long-term care at some point in their lives
- Nursing home care in Ohio averages $75,924 per year. In certain situations it costs considerably more, and these costs are expected to rise in the future
- Many families exhaust their life savings within a year or two of a family member moving into a nursing home
At Bixler Moore, LLC, our Ohio elder law lawyers can design a plan in advance to protect your assets in the event you or a loved one requires long-term care in the future. In addition, we can help you cope with what is known as a Medicaid planning crisis situation.
