Understanding Elder Law in Arkansas

At our Arkansas law firm, we fight to protect your family’s ongoing financial success as you age into your golden years. As individuals enjoy longer lives, families are struggling with long-term care expenses.  It is a challenge to maintain the dignity of loved ones in end-of-life care situations, protecting a financial legacy from the continually rising costs of living and medical care, the plight of the caregiver, and much more.

Our Arkansas Elder Law Services Include:

  • Long-Term Care Planning
  • Medicaid Planning
  • Medicaid Crisis Planning
  • Special Needs Planning

We can help protect your assets and address your unique elder care needs and concerns. We assist clients in evaluating the options available for long-term care support and services. These include home care, assisted living, nursing homes, and retirement communities. We will also help you understand the public benefit programs, including Medicaid, Veterans Administration, and state-based programs that may help cover care costs. We’ll advise you of the planning options available for asset and family protection and help you access the benefits.

The Importance of Arkansas Medicaid Planning

Medicaid is a Federal and State program, and the rules vary from state to state. If you reside in Arkansas and need Medicaid, then Arkansas’s Medicaid rules apply. You can benefit significantly from our expert Medicaid planning attorneys who understand Arkansas’s specific Medicaid qualification, application, and approval process.

Medicaid planning can be a complicated and confusing process. Arkansas Medicaid can be a massive benefit towards protecting your assets, especially if you require nursing home care or in-home care. Our Heber Springs, AR attorneys can assist with Medicaid eligibility while protecting your hard-earned assets from being depleted by the cost of care.

Without the aid of Medicaid, the cost of an Arkansas nursing home can wipe out your family’s savings, retirement funds, and inheritance for your loved ones. Our Arkansas law firm can help you protect your hard-earned life savings from being spent down to pay for long-term care.

No matter your situation, we can help you develop a plan that protects your hard-earned assets from the financial burdens of expensive care options available to you. Contact White Law today and start planning to protect your legacy in Arkansas.
