Olga Berdé Mahl & Associates is an established New York and Westchester County law firm that is led by an experienced legal team. We work with men and women throughout the country who live in or have elders who live in New York needing guidance and advice on long-term care planning, Medicare/Medicaid planning, asset protection and elder care/family estate planning/asset protection issues.

Did you know that you can choose a long-term caregiver for your aging parent, loved one or other family member? The caregiver can be anyone, as long as they are legally in the U.S.. It is a common misconception that you do not have a say 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 — Keep your parents at home and avoid a nursing home or another care center.
  • Assets — 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 can 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.
