Medicaid (Asset Protection) Planning - Pennridge, PA

The costs of nursing homes are a huge concern for families. Most health insurance and Medicare plans provide only a limited amount of coverage for nursing home patients. Without long-term care insurance, the only option is often to pay the costs yourself until your assets are drained and you are able to apply for Medicaid. Gummer Elder Law can help to make this process less complex. Learn more about Medicaid Planning.

Guardianships - Pennridge, 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. Upon appointment of a guardian, you lose certain legal rights to act on your own behalf, and the guardian will be empowered to act for you. It is possible to avoid this process with proper planning. If you have a loved one who is no longer able to manage important matters, we can help guide you through the guardianship process. Learn more about guardianship.
