Planning for Care: Advice from an Elder Law Attorney
In this episode of Eldercare Illuminated, Torchlight’s VP of Product, Attorney Carolyn Romano chats with Elder Law Attorney, Harry Margolis, about how planning for short- or long-term care needs can protect family assets. In addition to learning what to do today to begin preparing for a loved one's future (or your own), you'll also find out how an Elder Law Attorney can help your family: 1) address the complexities presented by government programs and entitlements, such as Medicare and Medicaid; 2) understand the options seniors and their families have in the evolving regulatory environment; and, 3) how families can still find solutions in a crisis, even if little planning has been done beforehand.
