At New Jersey Elder Law Center, we apply years of legal experience toward helping clients achieve their long-term care planning goals—but we also go beyond traditional legal support to help our clients build the life they want for themselves or their loved ones.

At NJ Elder Law Center, we take a holistic approach to long-term care planning. In addition to legal support, we aim to protect our clients’ emotional well-being and help them achieve a higher quality of care.

Many of our team members are former caregivers, and we understand that the challenges of long-term care are emotional and financial. Our goal is to advocate on behalf of clients while also providing compassionate guidance and support.

We also take pride in our commitment to open communication. As part of our genuine commitment to service, we always aim to keep you informed at every step of the long-term care planning process.

Our team is proactive about client communication. We reach out to clients consistently to ensure that you’re benefiting fully from the services available to you.

The Medicaid program offers much-needed long-term care insurance to individuals below certain asset and income thresholds. The assistance provided by Medicaid can be crucial in helping seniors afford long-term care without exhausting their own life savings.

Many people are under the impression that Medicaid is only for individuals with low income or that they must exhaust their assets paying for care before they qualify. You can preserve your life savings by carefully planning for Medicaid eligibility, even if you own a home and have considerable assets.

Our legal team helps you ensure Medicaid eligibility with strategic planning tools such as Medicaid Compliant Annuities. These arrangements can preserve your assets for beneficiaries while still allowing you to access Medicaid assistance. In instances where only one spouse needs long-term care, Medicaid-compliant annuities also help protect the healthy spouse’s finances and quality of life.

If you worry that you or someone you love may soon need long-term care but aren’t sure about Medicaid eligibility, please reach out. We assist you with planning ahead to protect hard-earned savings from the cost of long-term care services.

Preserving financial stability in the face of long-term care is vital. Still, it’s only one of the many questions older individuals and their families need to address when planning their healthcare and assisted living options.

At New Jersey Elder Law Center, we believe that preserving independence, dignity, and high quality of life for our clients is just as important as protecting their finances.

We protect our clients by going beyond traditional legal solutions. To care holistically for all of our clients’ needs, we offer a number of care coordination services.

If you or someone you love needs long-term care services or you have other elder law concerns you’d like to discuss, contact us. We’d love to discuss your needs and offer guidance during a free consultation.
