Discover the 5 ways to pay for long-term care 10 a.m., Thursday, November 1st at the Holiday Inn Carbondale — Conference Center

In Southern Illinois, the cost of long-term care can range from $45,000 to $100,000 a year. Without proper planning, this can easily erase assets earned over a lifetime. Fortunately, State and Federal Laws provide a variety of options to help. This seminar will discuss the new VA regulations that went into effect October 18 that now require a 3-year look back on asset transfer and how this affects the Veteran’s Aid and Attendance program.

In this seminar, you will learn:

  • How Living Trusts avoid probate and why Last Will and Testaments don’t.
  • How your Durable Healthcare Power of Attorney, Living Will and the new HIPAA Release must work together.
  • What blended families (her kids / his kids, their kids) must do to avoid disinheriting each other and/or their separate children.
  • How to avoid death taxes, guarantee IRA stretch outs and plan for children and grandchildren with special needs.
  • How to protect your children’s and grandchildren’s inheritances from their divorces, debts, taxes, lawsuits, medical expenses and transfers out of the bloodline.
  • Why deeding your house to your children is not a good idea.
  • How to protect your home and saving from $6,000-a-month nursing home bills and Medicaid if you don’t have long-term care insurance — even if you or a loved one is in a nursing home now.
  • The proper estate planning documents you need to protect your estate.

Free Special Needs Planning Seminar

People who have disabilities frequently need costly assistance and medical care. Social Security and Medicaid benefits may be available to help people with disabilities cover these costs.

Free Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Seminar

Long-term care facilities are supposed to be a safe place for individuals who can’t live on their own. Unfortunately, many nursing homes and similar facilities fail to meet their obligations to residents. Instead, residents suffer physical and emotional harm caused by neglect or even intentional abuse. Learning how to recognize the signs of abuse and neglect in nursing homes could save the life of a loved one.
