Nursing Home Planning

For those living in Massachusetts, moving into a nursing home requires having some advance knowledge of state nursing home regulations.

That’s where our services at Cape Code Estate Plan are optimal. For over twenty years, our firm has served clients in our Barnstable office. Our specialty is preparing nursing home and estate planning documents for residents throughout Massachusetts.

In addition to helping hundreds of families plan for their future, we also teach them how to protect their assets from nursing homes as well as MassHealth. Many often wonder why it’s essential to consider these things before going into a nursing home. Not only are these plans beneficial for you but your family as well. One of the most significant benefits includes preventing the nursing home or MassHealth from forcing the sale of your home.

If you’re one of the many who are putting off nursing home planning, it may be due to one of the following:

  1. Procrastination or you haven’t gotten around to doing this yet.
  2. The nursing home planning process is confusing to you.
  3. You’re unsure of where to turn to for help.

One thing to keep in mind is, when you begin tackling nursing home planning, it isn’t a light topic. However, once these decisions are finalized, you’ll have the peace of mind knowing you can put it behind you because these details are covered.

When you plan beforehand, you’re giving your family a special gift. The main reason is that it’s one less detail they have to consider later. Otherwise, without this plan adequately set up and in place, your family must make decisions regarding your care on your behalf.
