Elder Law with Care provides Medicaid Planning in addition to traditional Elder Law services including, wills, trusts, powers of attorney, health care directives, special needs trusts, and guardianship.

Special Needs Trust

Sometimes called a "Supplemental Needs Trust" a Special Needs Trust’s purpose is to enable the donor to provide for the continuing care of a disabled spouse, child, relative or friend. The beneficiary of a Special Needs Trust will have access to the trust assets for purposes other than those provided by public benefits programs. In this way, the beneficiary will not lose eligibility for their public benefits programs. A Supplemental Needs Trust can be created by the donor during life or as part of their will. More / Less »

Last Will and Testament/Trusts

A will legally defines and declares how an individual wants their property to be distributed upon their death. A will does not go into effect until the individual dies and can be changed or revoked at any time prior to the individual's death. If an individual has no legal last will and testament at the time of death, the laws of intestate succession apply or it can become the responsibility of the state to distribute the dead individual's property.
