Elder Law & Medicaid Planning

Today’s retirees face a range of important legal, financial and health-related issues. For most, these matters tend to be confusing and complicated.

An elder law attorney handles all aspects of issues facing today’s retirees (e.g. MassHealth Medicaid Planning, applying for MassHealth Medicaid, end-of-life planning, disability, guardianship, elder abuse, and assisted living and nursing home matters).

Our Andover firm helps retirees and their families prevent the devastating effects of long-term care, so they can get back to what they love most—enjoying life.

In many cases, retirees need to act 5 years before they might need long-term care services in a nursing home to fully protect their assets. It is ideal, therefore, to begin the planning process with an attorney around age 60 - although it is never too late to plan.

For those who did not plan and now face a medical crisis (e.g. stroke, fall, dementia, serious decline) that will likely require skilled nursing care in a long-term care facility (i.e. nursing home), Medicare may pay up to 100 days. After that, the patient must pay out-of-pocket (at a rate often exceeding $14,000 per month).

When this happens, Morana Law can usually stop the hemorrhaging of money and get the client qualified for Medicaid MassHealth which will pay for the needed long-term care facility.

We understand the physical and mental challenges that often accompany the aging process. This allows us to address the legal and human needs of our clients. When planning an estate, for example, we take into consideration the health of the person or couple, the potential for assisted living placement or nursing home care and the clients’ overall wishes and concerns.
