Find the best care in the right place at the right price with this all-in-one guide!

Finding the right long-term care often means making difficult decisions during difficult times. Long-Term Care helps you understand the alternatives to nursing facilities and shows you how to find the best care you can afford.

With Long-Term Care, you'll be able to:

  • evaluate long-term care insurance
  • arrange home care
  • explore options beyond nursing homes
  • choose a nursing facility
  • get the most out of Medicare, Medicaid and other benefit programs
  • protect your assets, and
  • recognize and prevent elder fraud.

    The completely updated 8th edition has an all-new chapter on long-term care insurance and updated coverage of Medicaid. It also includes up-to-date benefit numbers, laws and taxes, and revised information on veterans' benefits.

    With sensitivity and clarity, Attorney Joseph Matthews gives you everything you need to help plan for and make the best arrangements for long-term care.

    This is finest up-to-date advice on long-term care that I have ever read. I would like to see a soft-copy of this book sent to everyone who reaches Social Security retirement age. It's a must-read for family members who are faced with elder care. It defines the process, and provides crisp definitions and discussions of the often mind-boggling rules, regulations and requirements for geriatric health care. Thank you Joseph Matthews!
