Legal Support For Elder Law Needs

Getting older comes with many joys but also many challenges, often including a decline in health and independence. These changes, in turn, create some financial challenges for elderly Arizonans in need of greater daily support and more frequent medical attention.

If you have been planning and saving for this day, Kruchek Law, PLLC, can help you determine how best to use the resources you've set aside. And if you don't have the luxury of much savings, the firm can help you access government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid to assist in your health and financial issues.

Long-Term Care Can Be Expensive, But Support Is Available

Long-term care costs can easily reach $4,000 a month, or more. This is a significant burden even for families with ample resources, but in many households this kind of expense can eventually lead to bankruptcy.

For families with few assets or limited income, state assistance is available through the Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS) — Arizona's version of long-term Medicaid. Kruchek Law, PLLC, can help you determine if you qualify for ALTCS, or how to use your financial resources strategically so that you gain ALTCS eligibility after exhausting your other resources.

Kruchek Law, PLLC, can also assist with other legal options related to long-term care needs, including:

  • Conservatorships and guardianships for those no longer able to make their own financial decisions
  • Health care power of attorney for those no longer able to make their own medical decisions
  • Nursing homes for those who need daily support
