Should you consider Estate Planning?

Through estate planning, you can address the best way to pass on your assets, plan for elder care, take measures to secure your quality of living during retirement and create legal instruments for important healthcare decisions.

We can sit down with you and tailor estate planning based on the type of assets you hold, along with your preferences and objectives. Estate planning is very personal, and we work closely with you to understand your goals and help you make decisions that are right for you. There is no “one-size-fits-all.”

We would love to help you plan! If you give us a call, we will be glad to answer your questions and tell you how we can help. Or feel free to email us at dstefans@sa-tax.com, 516-692-2744.

In December of 2013, USA Today reported that more than 8 million people used services of a long-term care provider in 2012. This is the first-ever compilation of federal data which profiles five types of long-term care providers in 2012 and will continue to issue new number every two years.

This new information provided in the National Study of Long-Term Care Providers is an effort by the National Center for Health Statistics to “get a better handle on the options for care and determine trends.”

The article touched on an important notion; long-term care services are not just nursing homes. Over the past 30 years the long-term care industry has evolved including adult day service centers, home health agencies, hospices, nursing homes, and assisted living and similar residential care communities. The areas indicated above include “58,500 paid, regulated long-term care entities are divided among the five sectors and employ nearly 1.5 million nurses and nursing aides.”

The long-term care agencies listed in this article are all helpful providers of care to the aging population. However, to this day much of the care provided to this population is from their family members and loved ones. People are concerned about paying for Nursing Homes that many do not want to go to. What many do not realize is that the cost of home care can cost as much as $4,000 to $10,000 a month in New York State!

Questions about how to prepare? We can help you.
