Will you be eligible for benefits to help pay for long-term care costs as you age?

Our free long-term care calculator will help you discover if you have the assets needed to pay for your care. Medicaid benefits may be available to help pay for the cost of care, but without proper pre-planning family resources must be largely or wholly depleted first, which means your assets could be lost to a senior care facility and/or the state of New York.

There are many options for long-term care, including Home Care, Nursing Home Care, and Assisted Living, all of which can be very costly.

In the Rockland County area, the median cost of such care is $18,000 per month.

Seniors and their loved ones are often surprised (and frustrated) to learn that private health insurance and benefits such as Medicare do not cover most of these expenses.

It’s no wonder that most seniors in our area will go through their entire nest egg or life’s savings within the first few years of care!

The good news, however, is that there may be tools or strategies available for your family to help protect assets and offset some of the costs. Seniors may also be able to use planning tools like certain types of trusts to safely protect family assets from the reach of long-term care facilities.

You can find out what options are available to you and the steps to take to secure benefits by starting with our Medicaid Calculator below.
