Jackie Bedard, estate planning and elder care attorney of Carolina Family Estate Planning in Cary, is thrilled to announce the release of a new publication, Don’t Go Broke in a Nursing Home! co-authored with Don Quante.
This collaborative writing, broken down in layman’s terms, offers readers the essential tools and knowledge for effective long-term care planning. The book offers creative financial strategies that can be used to protect assets and quality of care, as well as tax incentive information for those who plan ahead for long-term care.
Ms. Bedard states, "Many seniors fear that if they need long term care, they’ll lose their home and life savings to the nursing home. They believe that they must spend or give away all of their assets before they ever apply for Medicaid. The book shows people that there are more proactive approaches available to long-term care planning that can really empower seniors and allow them to have more flexibility and choices if care is needed, without having to deplete their assets.”
Ms. Bedard teaches a two-hour workshop that outlines, in easy-to-understand terms, the legal and personal issues when planning to protect assets from nursing home costs, and helping families carry out their wishes after they have passed. Those wanting more information about workshop schedules, scheduling a private workshop for an organization, private consultation, or want more information about long term care planning may contact Carolina Family Estate Planning at (919) 443-3035.
