Tips for executing a nursing home contract in New Jersey

When a person in New Jersey decides to put a loved one in a nursing home, they will have to execute a contract with the facility. It is important that people understand what to include and what not to include in such contracts. This is for the benefit of their loved one, who will be under the care of the nursing home staff. The following suggestions of what to include in a nursing home contract may be helpful to readers, but ultimately readers should seek legal guidance before signing a nursing home contract.

Medicaid planning and the five-year 'look-back' period

While some people in New Jersey may have long-term care insurance or a significant amount of savings to pay for nursing home care, many people plan on using Medicaid benefits. A person may qualify for Medicaid benefits if their monthly income does not exceed a certain amount that is set by the federal government (although some states have even lower limits).

How can you protect your special needs child in your estate plan?

Parents of special needs children in New Jersey are often grateful for every moment they have with their child. However, they may understand that their child will need life-long care, and, thus, may be worried about what will happen to their child once they are no longer alive. This is where estate planning becomes very important.
