Show Notes

What if you or a family member have an unexpected health crisis, such as a fall, stroke, accident, or dementia diagnosis? What if this crisis leave you or your loved one in need of some form of long-term care? What are your options, and how will you pay for this care?

In this episode, a recording of part of an informal virtual discussion held in September 2020, Kristin Daugherty and Tammy Zilske, our firm's two Long-Term Care Planners, discuss the different levels of long-term care and what each entails, as well as how each is or can be generally paid for - though each individual situation certainly varies - and which ones are eligible to be paid for by Medicaid benefits. Both Kristin and Tammy are also Certified Medicaid Planners - two of only three in all of Pennsylvania as of 2020 - and they help clients every day with submitting Medicaid applications when they require long-term care.
