Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Have Questions? We Can Answer Them!

Why might I need an Elder Law attorney?

If you or a loved one is concerned about long-term care, the planning of an estate and the execution of that plan after death, then you should consider consulting with an elder law attorney. At Akin Law P.A., we can help you plan for a time when you may not be able to make decisions on your own. We can explain the various options that are available to you to ensure your wishes are carried out in the event you become incapacitated or pass away.

How will estate planning affect the medical care my loved one receives?

There will be no effect on the medical care your loved one receives. Facilities that accept Medicaid and private pay patients offer identical care, meaning the only difference will be the cost to your estate.

How much do nursing homes cost?

The average length of stay in a nursing home is two and a half years. Nursing home costs average $70,000 a year, with an average cost per stay of $170,000.

Who will pay for my nursing home costs?

The government program that pays for most nursing home care is Medicaid, which is a federal and state medical program for those who meet certain asset and income levels. Some veterans are entitled to veterans benefits to pay for their nursing home care.

What are the major business organization forms, and how do I choose one that is right for my business?

The four major business organization forms are: (1) the partnership, (2) the limited liability company (LLC), (3) the corporation and (4) the sole proprietorship. Each has advantages and disadvantages, but when choosing the correct form for your business the core focus should typically be on personal liability and tax implications.
