Planning for How to Pay for Long-Term Care

Our elder law practice helps families find solutions when a loved one can't live independently any longer. We help people answer key questions such as, "Where will it be safe for my loved one to live?" and "How is my loved one going to pay for the care that he or she needs?"

Costs of Long-Term Care
Many people needing assistance with paying for the costs of long-term care are responsible people who did the right thing and saved diligently for their retirement years. As long as they stay healthy, they are typically able to comfortably live within their retirement budgets. The costs of long-term care, however, can stretch a retirement budget beyond its breaking point.

Examples of different types of long-term care cost ranges in the St. Petersburg area include:

  • Home companion care: starts at $18 - $20 per hour
  • Assisted living facility care: between $2000 and $4000 per month
  • Memory care in assisted living facilities: between $4000 and $6000 per month
  • Nursing home care: between $6000 and $8000 per month

Financial Assistance for Long-Term Care
Whether it is home care, assisted living, or nursing home care, there are usually only three sources of money: personal funds; long-term care insurance; and government benefits such as Medicaid and Aid & Attendance, a program for veterans offered through the Department of Veterans Affairs.

If you don't have enough money in your personal funds, then you need to look to long-term care insurance or government benefits. If you don't have long-term care insurance, then that only leaves the option of applying for government benefits. We can help you assess your options and complete steps to obtain the funds that may be available to you.
