Long-Term Care in the Community: Nursing Facility Alternatives

Some people want to maintain their freedom or feel that an elderly loved one does not need to reside in a traditional nursing home-type facility. In these situations, it is beneficial to speak with an attorney about how to remain in the community once you or a loved one requires daily care, while preserving your access to long-term care programs that can greatly assist you.

If you wish to speak with and an attorney, and you want to understand how you can plan for long-term care while remaining in your own home, the lawyers at the Baker Law Firm, P.C., invite you to call us at 203-885-1344 to discuss your wishes during a consultation.
