DIGNIFIED CARE FOR MINNESOTA’S ELDERLY POPULATION
In Minnesota, “elder law” is an umbrella term that covers a range of legal issues we may face as we age. These include estate planning, retirement planning and its tax implications, healthcare issues and the requirements for Medicare or Medicaid, and guardianships and conservatorships. While typically associated with later life, it is important to start planning for these legal issues well before retirement age. For those with elderly family members who are disabled or have special needs, planning for these issues is particularly urgent. Ronald Berglund of Berglund Law Office is an Elder Law attorney in Minnesota who can help families better understand and plan for these complex and often confusing legal matters.
We Help Families with Planning for the Future
A family member confronted with aging and/or disability-related issues may require advice on a range of topics, including:
- medical assistance,
- disability or long-term care planning,
- asset protection and the “spend down,”
- the “Elderly Waiver”, asset transfers (including Transfer on Death Deeds) and Revocable Living Trusts (if appropriate),
- personal care service contracts,
- and Powers of Attorney and Health Care Directives.
Unlock the Benefits of Medicaid
MEDICAID, also known as Medical Assistance in Minnesota, is a combined federal and state program designed to offer financial support to those in need for their medical and long-term-care expenses. This is the only government program that can cover long-term nursing home care. Given the complexity of the rules that determine eligibility for Medicaid/Medical Assistance and their frequent changes, it is important to consult with a qualified elder law attorney before taking any actions that could have implications for you and your family, such as tax, family relationship, and legal ramifications.
