Winston-Salem Elder Law Attorneys

North Carolina Medicaid Planning Lawyers

Whether you are at an advanced age or not, and whether your health is such that you anticipate the eventual need for long-term care, it is still a sound idea to plan for the preservation of your assets, should nursing home or assisted living become necessary. Without the proper planning, everything you have worked so hard to build can be lost, taken to pay for the costs of care. You want an experienced attorney to help you put measures in place to protect your estate and your heirs.

At the law office of Stroud & Panetti, P.C., our attorneys both have more than 20 years of experience protecting the rights of people in and around Winston-Salem. We have assisted clients at all stages of life including planning for the client's financial well-being in retirement. We take a straightforward approach to elder law issues, working directly with you at all times, and keeping you fully informed of all developments in your case as well as your options and your likelihood of success.

Our Elder Law Practice

We work closely with individuals and families who want to take proactive steps to protect property in the event nursing home or long-term care becomes necessary. We will help you effectively plan to maximize the benefits you receive through Medicaid, and to effectively transfer ownership of property to others, so that you don't lose everything you worked so hard to build. We will prepare a durable power of attorney for you, designating a person to act on your behalf should you lack the capacity to do so.

In most instances, it is never too early to start planning for the likelihood of long-term care. We can help you evaluate your options, including the use of private insurance to pay for long term care. We can help you set up trusts or otherwise transfer title to property, so that it goes to your spouse or child, rather than a nursing home facility. We can also help you jointly title property, such as real estate, to minimize the risk of loss.
