The Costs of Elder Care:
The Race Against Time!

We are extremely proud to be a part of a radio series on CBS KNX 1070 and KFWB 980, called ‘The Costs of Elder Care: The Race Against Time!’ This program is giving vital information to the public regarding long term care and finding ways to pay for it, including middle class families qualifying for Medi-CAL (Medicaid).

LA LAW Attorneys are passionate about educating the public about options for seniors and their long term care! As a Los Angeles Estate Planning/Elder Law Attorney, Joseph McHugh was invited to be interviewed by radio talk show host, Charles Feldman for a series on the challenges of the high costs of aging and the options to pay for nursing home care. Of course one of these options is qualifying for Medi-CAL and Joe explains that middle class families with modest assets CAN qualify by reallocating their assets.

There will be additional information & replays of the interviews on the CBS KNX Radio Station’s Web Site CLICK HERE!

As always, call us at LA LAW if you have concerns about your family and long term care!

Take advantage of a free phone consultation or appointment for a free 30 minute consultation to review your individual situation and determine if you would benefit from our experience and legal services. Call us at:
