Free Seminar on Paying for Long-Term Care

Friday, April 20th, at two (2) convenient times:

8:00 – 9:30 a.m., or 5:00 – 6:30 p.m.

Many factors — illness, incapacity and the need for long-term care — can leave a family’s finances in disarray. Fortunately, careful planning can provide considerable protection from these uncertainties of life.

Medicare is the federal health insurance program most seniors depend upon to pay for medical care. Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover long-term care costs. Medicaid is the only federal program available to pay for long-term care provided at home, in an assisted living facility or a nursing home. Medicaid has medical standards and financial limitations, and is one of the most confusing programs to understand. With an aging population, however, Medicaid is also one of the most important benefits for seniors who need long-term care.

Attorney Donald D. Vanarelli ( will discuss how to protect your assets in the event you or a spouse are facing long-term care and need Medicaid. Learn techniques to protect your estate so, instead of spending your savings on long-term care costs, you can leave your assets to your children and grandchildren.

Seating is Limited. Advance Registration Required.

Advance registration required. To Register, Contact: Ginny Morrissey, Vanarelli & Li, LLC, Tel: 908-232-7400, Email:
