Benefits Planning

Medicare & Medicaid, Divestiture

If you, your spouse or partner, or your loved ones may require long-term care such as that provided by a nursing home or assisted living facility, there are important decisions you should make now to prepare. These decisions come with many important considerations, which are best discussed with a qualified elder law attorney.

Common questions include:

  • How will I pay for long term care?
  • Am I or my loved one eligible for Medicaid?
  • What are the best ways to protect my assets?
  • What is the best way to pass on property or money to my kids?

It’s important to create a plan for what type of long-term care is desired and how it will be paid for before that care is required. Start planning today—we’ll answer your questions and help make a plan that makes the most sense for you and your family. Contact us at 608-784-8310 to speak with an elder law attorney.

If you are concerned that a loved one may not be able to make medical and/or financial decisions for themselves, it’s important that you speak with an experienced attorney about what your options may be for helping care for that individual.

Our experienced attorneys can help assess your specific situation and help you determine the best course of action to help keep your loved one safe.

Elder Abuse

Elder abuse is a serious crime against some of our most vulnerable citizens, and according to the Department of Justice, it affects at least 10% of older Americans every year.

If you suspect a loved one is being neglected or abused by their caretakers, whether in a nursing home, assisted living facility, or by an in-home caretaker, it’s crucial that you take swift action. Learn more about how to recognize the signs of elder abuse and what you can do to prevent it.

Elder abuse can take the form of physical abuse, financial fraud, scams and exploitation, caregiver neglect and abandonment, psychological abuse, and sexual abuse.

If you or a loved one have suffered elder abuse, schedule an appointment with one of our attorneys by calling 608-784-8310.

If this is an emergency, call 9-1-1 for immediate help. For non-life threatening emergencies, you can call the National Elder Fraud Hotline at 1-833–FRAUD–11 (or 833–372–8311) or the Eldercare Locator helpline at 1-800-677-1116.
