Do you have a loved one suffering from memory loss? Did you promise them that you’d take care of them no matter what...and now you’re feel burnt-out, over-worked, and overwhelmed by all of the tough decision and responsibilities resting on your shoulders?
Are you wondering how in the world you are going to pay for the care your loved one needs without losing everything?
The good news is that there is help available. Do you know that your loved one may qualify for benefits to help pay for their care? Even better, did you know that for some, there are resources available that may allow your loved one to stay at home longer?
If you need someone to help you ease the burden, Carolina Family Estate Planning can help.
We’re here to be your trusted guide along the Alzheimer’s Journey. We can help you with the headache of sorting out the different public programs and the endless red tape of applying for benefits to pay for care or safeguarding your loved one so they don’t run out of money and out of options.
If your loved one is in the early stages or memory issues, it is likely the right time to get started with planning. The sooner you begin, the more options you may have. However, even if your family is already in a crisis, it may not be too late!
You may have even been told by a well-meaning case worker or friend that there’s nothing you can do to prevent your loved one from spending down their hard-earned life savings for their healthcare needs, but that’s often not the case.
We can help you use honest and legal planning solutions so that your loved one can live with dignity, no matter what stage of life they are in.
Whether your loved one suffers from Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, ALS, MS, stroke-related impairments, or other similar issues, we’re here to help you find the right solutions.
