Long Term Care

Long Term Care in Sacramento and Surrounding Areas

Long-term care (i.e. assistance with dressing, bathing, eating, ambulating or using the toilet) is extraordinarily expensive and not covered by Medicare.

Most families cannot afford to take care of a loved one with dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, stroke or Multiple Sclerosis. And very few people have purchased long-term care insurance or have vast resources for the necessary expenses.  

Unfortunately, the majority of people over age 65 today will need long-term care services in their lifetimes.

The average length of care is 2 years, but 20% of people will need care for longer than 5 years.

California nursing home costs in 2017 an averaged $110,000 per year and assisted living facilities averaged $54,000 per year.

As a result, life savings, retirement accounts and even the family home are drained rapidly to pay for long-term care and extended hospital stays, leaving nothing for the surviving spouse and nothing to pass to your children.

The right legal and senior care solutions can help you or a loved one facing long-term care needs and expenses.

I was absolutely without a clue as to how to begin or what I should do to establish an estate plan. I did know that I wanted someone I could trust, that was honest and I would have confidence in. I was referred to Heather by my friend who was being legally advised by Heather on another estate. She was very satisfied with her work and thought I might be happy with her service. At our consultation appointment, her presentation was very thorough. I had lots of questions, and she was easy to talk to and was able to guide me to just the kind of estate plan I needed. That was 10 years ago. Due to circumstances in my life, I have had to make changes to my plan, and I always go back to her for her legal services and guidance. I have recommended Heather before.
