Nursing Home And Special Needs Planning | Chester County Asset Protection Attorney Serving West Chester And Southeastern Pennsylvania
Many people worry that in order to obtain long-term healthcare, they will be forced to deplete their assets. This does not have to be so. The nursing home planning and asset protection strategies we provide will enable you or your loved one to establish access to government subsidies for medical and nursing care, while retaining control over important assets.
Further, we can help you to create a special needs trust as part of a comprehensive estate plan. This can enable you to reserve money for a disabled loved one while protecting his or her eligibility for public assistance. This remains true whether the need is for in-home nursing assistance, assisted living care, full-time nursing home care or hospice care.
We also can help you to establish powers of attorney granting your chosen representative the ability to make financial or healthcare decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated. If desired, we can also help you to draft a living will to set limits to the medical care you will receive at the end of your life.

Fighting Abuse And Neglect Of Elders
At the Law Office Therese L. Money, LLC we are concerned about protecting our clients’ bodies and minds. For many years prior to her parents’ deaths, Terry served as their primary caregiver. She experienced firsthand the hardships and challenges parents, spouses, and their children endure at the end stage of a loved one’s or parent’s life. She has dedicated her practice to helping others make the most of this period of life. She strives to protect her clients’ interests, both financially and physically.
If your elderly loved one was taken advantage of financially; was physically or emotionally abused; or suffered injury as a result of neglect — including dehydration, malnutrition, bedsores or slip-and-fall injuries resulting in broken bones and bruising — while under the care of a nursing home, hospital, private caregiver, or home health care worker, we can seek the justice and financial compensation your loved one deserves.
