Elder Law

Salem Elder Law Attorneys

CASEY LUNDREGAN BURNS, P.C., has a strong reputation for its work in Massachusetts elder law. Those over 65 years old often have specialized estate and tax planning needs. They also need help preparing for and maintaining Medicaid eligibility. Many seniors require years of in-home care or care at a nursing home. For family members, it is generally important to prepare a plan to meet an older adult’s needs while at the same time, preserving a lifetime of savings for family.

Our attorneys are experienced in every aspect of elder law planning. We know what it takes to develop an effective plan and can guide our clients through complex planning scenarios in an easy-to-understand manner so an educated decision can be made to accomplish your goals and avoid surprises.

Massachusetts Senior Care

Many seniors rely on Medicaid, or MassHealth, to pay for treatment and care in a nursing home. Applying, appealing a negative decision, and maintaining eligibility are processes that often require an attorney’s assistance. Our lawyers handle MassHealth/Medicare/Medicaid planning and Medicare eligibility issues.

Contact one of our attorneys to discover what CASEY LUNDREGAN BURNS, P.C., can do for you or your senior. We will explain the legal ramifications of a spend-down and address how various forms of wealth such as homes, investments and cash are treated under the law. We will also discuss strategies to protect these assets even if a nursing home stay is imminent.

Protecting Family Assets

We also work with individuals and families on long-term asset planning. If not carefully planned for, family wealth may needlessly be spent on the long-term care of an institutionalized elder. Monthly expenses for such living arrangements can exceed $13,000, and even plentiful savings can vanish in a short period of time. Although timely planning for such an occurrence is preferable, the existing law provides legal and ethical alternatives to the loss of a lifetime of savings, even if a loved one is already in a nursing home.

CASEY LUNDREGAN BURNS, P.C., provides financial planning services to ensure that seniors are well-provided for and family wealth is secure and protected for the next generation.
