Stouffer Legal Launches Workshop on Medicaid Planning
Breaking Medicaid myths and offering beneficial information on elder care, Stouffer Legal Medicaid planning workshops are free for individuals in the community.
TOWSON, Md., January 22, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Stouffer Legal specializes in estate planning, asset protection and elder law. Since Medicaid planning touches on all three of these legal fields, the law firm is the area's expert in the process. Adult children with aging parents and individuals with at-risk spouses are invited to Stouffer Legal's free workshop on Medicaid planning. Offering beneficial information, Wilson McManus, a Maryland estate planning attorney who recently joined the firm, will lead the workshop at the office, located in the heart of Towson, on Feb. 20, 2019, at 10 a.m.
“Proper estate planning can help families keep control of their affairs while deciding what care their loved ones need,” said McManus. “Our newest workshop will educate attendees on Medicaid planning and elder care. Many of our clients are shocked to learn that nursing homes cost an average of $10,000 per month, and the average stay is two years. We can help individuals navigate the complex maze of paying for nursing home care.”
Before joining Stouffer Legal, McManus was a pioneering Maryland attorney who started the widespread use of revocable living trusts as a means for clients to avoid the probate process and maximize flexibility in estate tax deductions. Now, working together with the law firm's founder, Britt Stouffer, they create innovative estate plans designed to protect their clients from creditors and predators. The asset protection plans designed by the firm provide an alternative to total elimination of life savings to pay for nursing home care.
The Medicaid workshop will break myths while bringing clarity to the Medicaid application process and help individuals learn all about Medicaid qualification. Attendees will be educated on how to care for aging loved ones, how to tell when a loved one needs to be in a nursing home and how to decide if a loved one needs at-home nursing care. Families may learn about the differences between emergency care, ongoing care and managed medical daily supervision, as well as crisis planning versus pre-planning.
Stouffer Legal is the area's expert on estate planning and elder law, and they frequently help families learn how to pay for nursing home care without breaking the bank.
