Who We Are & What We Do

            We work with families who are facing one of the toughest and most heart-breaking situations of life - the placement of a beloved family member - mother, father, husband, wife - in a nursing home.  Our clients are terrified that their loved-ones will not get the care that they deserve or, worse yet, that they will run out of money within a short period of time and not be able to afford that care.  We help our clients through the maze of laws, regulations and paperwork to find the care that their loved ones deserve, while helping them to get benefits without spending all of their loved one’s assets.


            We have 38 years experience of helping innumerable families deal with this terrible situation.  It is safe to say that we have “seen it all”, having dealt with almost every situation that could arise in this area.  Our trained, dedicated and caring staff have the experience to help you during this difficult time.  We can provide you with financial peace of mind so that you can focus on what is truly important - your loved one’s care and well-being.


            The regulations and laws governing Medicaid, Social Security and VA benefits are complex and constantly changing.  Most of our clients do not have the time, expertise or experience to successfully navigate these waters.  They are already physically and emotionally drained by the care that they are giving to their loved ones. 


            Is this the right time for you to learn about the various Medicaid, Social Security or VA laws and do this work necessary to get eligibility, all the time wondering whether they are doing it right?
