Non-Crisis Medi-CAL and Long Term Care Planning should be a focused personal task for anyone that is currently healthy, but wants to plan for the possibly of becoming incapacitated.

This is a particularly important subject for adult children with healthy, yet aging parents. Planning for death is one thing, but more importantly, planning for a possibly need for long term care due to a car accident, advanced stages of memory loss and dementia, stroke or other health problem that required full time skilled nursing care is a critical issue that all senior citizens and their families should have a estate plan set up to help save the family home, retirement savings and other assets.

Long Term Care Nursing homes average over $6,000 a month and will want a month in advance payment before the 100 days of Medicare for an acute health crisis happens!
