Long-Term Care and Medicaid Eligibility Assistance Lawyers

Corpus Christi - Robstown - Rockport - Aransas, and San Patricio County




There is no such thing as a free nursing home. Even Veterans Affairs facilities are paid for with prior service. Far too few people have long-term care insurance, and not many families can afford to "private pay" for long. "Private pay" means writing a check every month, and that often leads to losing everything, including savings, homes and personal belongings.

The options for paying for long-term nursing home care are limited, and many family members simply cannot afford to provide the care. Without the necessary knowledge and experience to take the right steps, a person could lose everything in the last months or years of his or her life just paying for care.
