Finding the Right Care for the Elderly

This NY Times article has great tips on finding the right care for aging loved ones and how to pay for this care.  One note, the article says that Medicaid will not pay for assisted living.  However, North Carolina has a program called Special Assistance that can provide assistance to eligible individuals.  To find out if you or a loved one is eligible for assistance with the cost of long-term care, you should speak with an elder law attorney.  At Wiggen Law Group, we can assist you in planning for the cost of long-term care.
