Probate, long term care, and tax laws are constantly changing.

Learn about medical and financial powers of attorney, wills, “Ladybird” deeds and living trusts. Attendees will learn about how “gifting” can affect them and the recipient, including gift tax laws, capital gains tax laws, and the person’s eligibility for Medicaid and Veterans benefits. Course taught by elder care law attorney, Christopher Lindsay.


Protect Your Assets from the High Cost of Long Term Care - Class #S18313


Did you know that 50% of people 65 years or older will spend some time in a nursing

home and that it costs $8,000 a month for such care? Because neither health insurance nor Medicare covers these costs, losing one’s life savings to such costs is a natural fear. This course discusses ways to avoid the nursing home; in-home care options, payment options, long term care insurance, life insurance conversions and hybrids, Veterans and Medicaid benefits, special needs trusts and more. Learn how to avoid the Medicaid “Estate Recovery” law which seeks repayment from a person’s estate for benefits paid. Course taught by elder care law attorney, Christopher Lindsay.
