Long-Term Care

Long-term Care Planning Provides Peace of Mind

Americans are living much longer today than in the past. And Utah seniors are living longer, on average, than most Americans. Planning for the long-term care of ourselves or a loved one is rarely something that any of us look forward to. Doing so forces us to think hard about the future and the different twists and turns it may take. However, there are many good reasons to begin planning today rather than waiting until the need is upon us.

With the cost of nursing homes in Utah averaging $4,300 to $4,800 per month or more, even a few years in a nursing home can devastate what you've spent a lifetime earning. At Platt Law, P.C. we help our clients plan for the possibility of entering a nursing home, an assisted living facility, or obtaining in-home care services. We'll explore with you the many different options that are available for funding your long-term care needs. We'll show you how to evaluate and find the right long-term care providers, how to ensure good care from them, and how to pay for it without going broke. We can help you tie together all the government programs like Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans Benefits and even deal with the state for you. Let us help you prepare for tomorrow so that you can have the peace of mind that comes from planning today.
