Alexandrov, Metzger & Flannagan assists many clients who are concerned about the impact that a catastrophic nursing home stay may have on their assets. Given the five-year look-back on asset transfers imposed by the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, advance planning in this area is essential. Through trust planning and other proven techniques employed by the firm, clients can protect their residences and other important assets from the devastating costs of nursing home and long-term care costs and provide a legacy for their children. We are frequently able to preserve additional assets for the family even in situations where the individual is already in the nursing home and advance planning is no longer a viable option. Our attorneys frequently attend continuing education courses to remain current in this complex and ever-changing area of the law.
