Long Term Care Planning
GRAND RAPIDS LONG-TERM CARE PLANNING AND ADVOCACY FOR WEST MICHIGAN FAMILIES
There are many aspects to consider when planning for retirement: financial planning, estate planning, even travel planning. We recommend you add long-term care planning to your list.
Studies show that family members provide 80% of the care for aging parents in this country, providing an average of 21 hours of care per week. As a result, the financial costs for those doing the day-to-day caring is significant.
Long-term care planning can help ease that financial burden. When family caregiving is not possible, there are other options: long-term care insurance, government benefits, Veteran’s Administration (VA) aid and attendance or other VA pension benefits. Reeder Plachta Murphy can help you sort through your options and weigh the pros and cons. Our attorneys are members of the National Association of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA). Our Elder Law Solutions team can help you establish a short and long-term plan that works for you and your family.
