Long-Term Care (ALTCS)
Many Arizona families face challenges when it comes to long-term health care. Fortunately, Medicare is available to cover the long-term costs of nursing level care, including expenses relating to nursing homes, assisted living, and in-home residential care.
Arizona Long-Term Care System (ALTCS) is a specialized branch of Arizona’s Medicaid program that covers long-term health care for qualifying seniors. ALTCS provides health insurance coverage to individuals that require a nursing home level of care, which includes care in a licensed nursing home, rehabilitation center, residential care facility, assisted living facility, or in-home care environment.
As the ALTCS application process can be complex and time-consuming, many seniors choose to seek the help of an experienced Mesa elder law attorney. An attorney can reduce the risk of rejection and help families navigate Arizona’s long-term care benefits.
It’s not uncommon for U.S. military veterans to suffer serious health problems as they get older. Although you may be receiving some benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, they may not be sufficient to cover your growing expenses.
If you or a loved one served in the military during wartime and are now unable to live comfortably without regular assistance with the basic functions of daily living, you may be eligible for help through a program known as Veterans Aid and Attendance.
A Mesa elder law attorney can help determine if you qualify for this improved pension benefit and can guide you through the application process. The amount that you are eligible for will depend on your marital status and the number of dependents.
Other Areas (Guardianships & Conservatorships, Probate, Estate Planning)
Mesa elder law attorneys deal with a wide range of legal matters that impact elderly individuals. Some of these issues are related to guardianships, conservatorships, probate, and estate planning.
When meeting with an elder care attorney for an initial consultation, it is important to discuss in detail what you need in terms of legal services and what your expectations are as a client.
Your Mesa elder care attorney will then develop a strategy or plan of action for handling your legal matters. Your attorney will also act as a reliable source of contact if you have any ongoing questions or concerns.
