Protect Your Assets From the Costs of Nursing Home Care

Long-Term Care is Costly

Did you know…

  • The average length of a nursing home stay is 2 years.
  • The cost of nursing home care in Massachusetts can range from $12,000 to $15,000 per month – a total cost ranging between $144,000 to $180,000 per year!

Nursing home care could cost you and your family $288,000 to $360,000, or more. These costs are out of reach for most people and can deplete your hard-earned savings, leaving little to no inheritance to pass on to your children and grandchildren. If you have worked hard to build your nest egg, don’t let your life savings disappear.

Plan Early to Protect Your Home

In Massachusetts, asset protection must be in place 5 years in advance of nursing home care to have a full effect. If you don’t have your assets and finances set up ahead of time, you could see your savings dwindle. No one knows what tomorrow may hold, so putting your plan in place now is critical.
