Obtaining Guardianship of the Elderly

The reasons that cause you to believe that your loved one needs this kind of assistance are often very heart-wrenching. The steps you take to give this type of assistance do not need to be. Caring for older adults can often involve multiple family members who may worry about a senior’s personal care. You may need to obtain agency services to deal with nursing, health or residential care matters. David Karr can help you to obtain the authority you need from the Court without the need for fear or intimidation.

Medicaid and Long-Term Care Planning in West Virginia

The cost of nursing home care can rapidly deplete a couple’s life savings. There are several legal methods available to protect portions of your savings and at the same time become eligible for Medicaid payment for that long-term care. It is best to examine these methods well in advance of the need arising for long-term care. However, many opportunities for asset protection may still exist even after admission to the nursing care facility. Please contact the Karr Law Office for an appointment today to discuss this matter.
