What Are Elder Law and Nursing Home Protection Trusts?

Elder law encompasses a specialized area of legal practice that focuses on the unique needs and challenges faced by older adults and their families. It covers a wide range of legal matters, including long-term care planning, asset protection, guardianship, healthcare decision-making, and more.

Nursing home protection trusts, also known as Medicaid asset protection trusts or irrevocable income-only trusts, are legal tools designed to safeguard assets while ensuring eligibility for Medicaid benefits to cover the costs of long-term care. These trusts allow individuals to protect their hard-earned assets from being depleted by nursing home expenses while still qualifying for the necessary care and support.
