Saving Assets While Keeping Medicaid Benefits
An Alzheimer’s diagnosis before the age of 65 is rare but not completely impossible. Since Jeff was only 59 and had a family to take care of he wanted to make sure he could save his assets for his family if he were no longer there to take care of them, either literally or hypothetically.
Only a few people realize the fact early on during their diagnosis that paying for Alzheimer’s care out of their own pockets can leave them bankrupt within 5-6 years or drain their resources. Many people seem to overlook the facts and live only in the moment, thinking they would be able to take care of their finances somehow. However, that is not always the case.
It is important to keep in mind that your own resources can be limited when it comes to paying for a long-term full-time care. It becomes financially draining for them to cover the treatment costs on top of usual household expenses. That is why people often look for Medicaid when it has ‘already’ taken a toll on their finances. But the best way to save your assets and receive help through Medicaid requires forethought and careful planning with the help of a professional.
