Medicaid (Asset Protection) Planning in Bensalem, PA

Nursing home costs are an enormous concern for families. Most health insurance plans and Medicare only provide limited coverage for nursing home residents.

Learn about Medicaid Planning.

Guardianships - Bensalem, PA

If you become disabled or incapacitated without a power of attorney in place, then a guardian must be appointed by the court to care for you and manage your financial affairs.
