An Overview To Elder Care And Planning

Long-term planning for an aging parent or loved one is a multistep process that can be overwhelming to deal with on your own. Many people throughout the Westchester and New York City area face the same issues you do, and you can find the help you need at our law firm.

Olga Berdé Mahl & Associates is an established Westchester County law firm that is led by an experienced legal team. We work with men and women throughout the Westchester and New York City area who need guidance and advice on long-term care planning, Medicare/Medicaid planning, asset protection and other elder care/family estate planning/asset protection issues. There are many layers to effectively planning for loved ones and their families, which often requires the assistance of a lawyer who is familiar with the process and the system.

Did you know that you can choose the long-term caregiver for your aging parent, loved one or family member? The caregiver can be anyone, as long as they are a U.S. citizen. It is a common misconception that you do not have a choice in the process of choosing a caregiver.

Elder Care: Comprehensive Planning

There are many ways you can go about long-term care planning for an aging loved one, but to be effective, you need to work with someone who understands all aspects of the system and how to overcome hurdles.

At our firm, we take a simple, straightforward approach called "PACG/30," which stands for:

  • Parents- We can work with you to help keep your parents at home and avoid a nursing home or another care center.
  • Assets- Family asset protection. We implement effective asset protection strategies for the whole family and avoid costly probate and contests.
  • Caregivers- Did you know that you can choose your own caregiver without any cost to you or your loved one? We help explain this process and what steps to take in establishing someone to help with home health care issues.
  • Government- Guaranteed government funding. Comprehensive estate planning is important, and we can help with establishing an estate plan to assure funding for home care. This is paid by the government.
  • 30/Qualification Time Period is ONLY 30 DAYS. Unlike other options, qualifications for receipt of these benefits takes only 30 days after the estate plan is executed.
