Older Americans have unique legal and planning needs. As life expectancy increases, the need for long-term care is becoming more and more common. Today, 70% of Americans over sixty-five will need long-term care of some sort during their lives, and 40% will enter a nursing home. Having worked a lifetime to save, this can be a disturbing reality for older Americans who wish to protect themselves from impoverishment and preserve their wealth for their children and loved ones.
Many Americans believe that nothing can be done to protect their assets and income from long-term medical costs. Fortunately, this belief is wrong. Once a person requires long-term care or enters a nursing home, much can be done to protect his or her assets. In fact, in many instances most or all of a person’s income and assets can be preserved.
