Along with aging comes the risk of health issues that require in-home help, assisted living, and/or nursing home care. Clients and their families are concerned with maintaining as much independence as possible, obtaining high quality of care if the need arises, and saving their hard earned assets for their spouses and families. Up-to-date legal advice regarding long term care insurance, medical insurance, and public benefits such as Medicare, MaineCare (Maine’s Medicaid program), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and Social Security benefits, is critical to best effectuate your goals.
