The AFT Brochure on Special Needs Trusts for the Elderly is Here!

We know that you have questions about how to pay for long-term care in a nursing home for an aging parent or loved one and how to also protect their assets. For the elderly who are over the age of 65 entering a skilled nursing home in Alabama and certain other states, Alabama Family Trust can set up a special needs trust which can enable that individual to keep the “spend down” to pay for needed items and services not covered by Medicaid. While it could be a little intimidating to think about setting up a special needs trust – but if you have a disabled loved one entering a nursing home, you can’t afford not to think about it! Fortunately, the Alabama Family Trust brochure is here to make understanding special needs trusts for the elderly easier than ever.
