My mother just went into a nursing home, is it too late to save her assets?
It is never too late to help preserve a loved one’s assets, even if they are already living in a skilled nursing home facility. Most people believe they have too much money to qualify for Medicaid or they have to wait 5 years. Rest assured, this is not the case. Call an Elder Law attorney to help determine what you can preserve for your loved one. Most of what you may have been told about Medicaid is probably wrong.
