Seeking Government Benefits
Your Family’s Law Firm
Long-term nursing care can be incredibly expensive. Many patients simply do not have the resources to pay for the care they need out of pocket. Instead they turn to Medicaid.
Medicaid is a government program that pays for the medical care that individuals need, when they cannot afford it themselves.
At Weinstein & Randisi, a Rochester, New York, elder law firm, we help families plan for long-term care, advising them on the regulations that govern Medicaid. Our attorneys work closely with clients to help them craft comprehensive plans that preserve their assets for the next generation, while still allowing them to qualify for the medical assistance they need.
We encourage clients to meet with us for a free initial consultation long before they, or their family members, need full-time care. Our lawyers take the time to learn about the type of care they foresee needing and how soon they anticipate entering a nursing home. Then we discuss the assets they are hoping to protect, so that we can help them effectively navigate the Medicaid system.
At Weinstein & Randisi, we are committed to giving families the information and advice they need to make the best decisions for their futures. Our lawyers never charge for calls or meetings, so you can get the answers you need to questions, such as:
- How much can I give my children as gifts without a Medicaid penalty?
- Can I pay a family member to care for me?
- What is the best way to protect my major assets for my children and grandchildren?
