Nebraska and Western Iowa Attorneys

As people advance in age and approach a time when they may need to enter a nursing home or other care facility, it is important to have the necessary plans in place. Many people are not aware of the various options available to pay for their long-term care. Some needlessly use their own assets to pay for their care and leave substantial federal and state benefit money on the table.

At Elder Law of Omaha, Catherine N. Swiniarski, Nick Halbur and Abby McConnaughhay, Attorneys at Law, provide comprehensive planning services designed to preserve your assets without jeopardizing your access to the care you need. We understand how overwhelming the task of working through these plans may seem. We will walk you through the entire process from traditional estate planning functions such as wills and trusts to the development of a comprehensive plan that provides for your long-term care and protects your estate to the fullest extent possible.
