Nursing home bills for seniors who are no longer able to live independently can easily total $7,000 or more per month. Very few individuals can afford to pay this expense from their personal assets—especially if they have a spouse living at home or had planned to leave an inheritance for their children.
In Qualify for Financial Assistance for Nursing Home Care: The North Carolina Consumer’s Guide to Long Term Care Planning and Asset Protection, attorney John J. Peck explains what steps seniors can take to get the care they need without draining their assets. John has practiced law in eastern North Carolina for over 40 years and practices exclusively in the areas of asset protection, estate planning, and elder law.
