Trust the Medicaid Planning experts at Kimbrough Law to help you avoid the costly mistakes that can happen when you attempt to qualify for Medicaid on your own.
Finding ways to help families pay for long-term care in Georgia is an important goal for any Medicaid Planning Attorney. The median cost of a private room in a Georgia nursing home in 2019 is $8,517, according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey. If your loved one shares a room, it’s not much less expensive. A semi-private room in Georgia runs on average $7,513 per month.
Very few families in Georgia, or anywhere for that matter, can manage this kind of expense. But the odds are good that you or someone you love will need long-term care. In fact, the Administration for Community Living, a part of the Department of Health and Human Services, predicts that 7 in 10 people turning age 65 today will need, at some point, some type of long-term-care services—either at home, in their community or in a facility. That’s 70% of all adults.
How will you pay for this care? Is selling the family home and emptying your savings account the only way to cover the cost? It doesn’t have to be. There is another option: you can plan to qualify for Medicaid. That’s where Kimbrough Law can help. We have worked with families struggling to find money so their loved ones can receive the care they need. We can help you, too.
