On May 18, Lamson & Cutner participated in the second annual Yorktown Senior Law Day, in Jefferson Village, NY. Seniors were able to learn about various legal issues through presentations given throughout the morning.
Lamson & Cutner partner David Cutner gave a presentation entitled “Do You Need Home Care? How to Obtain Benefits from a Medicaid Personal Care Program”
This program provided an overview of the eligibility rules to qualify for Medicaid home care. It also discussed how to protect your assets and income, and advocate during the Conflict-Free and Medicaid Long Term Care (MLTC) evaluations. Programs and benefits available from Medicaid were also explained.
Seniors were also able to take advantage of free consultations with attorneys, geriatric care managers, and certified financial planners. The Yorktown program is an offshoot of the extremely popular Senior Law Day that takes place each Fall at the County Center in White Plains, NY. This year’s White Plains Senior Law Day will take place on Tuesday, October 17. Mark your calendars now for this valuable and informative event.
