Where It All Begins
My name is Mark Connell and I’m an Elder Law Attorney serving clients along the shoreline and throughout Connecticut. As an Elder Law Attorney, I help people protect their assets from long term care costs.
Like most Americans, you have always faced your day-to-day challenges with pride and grit. You went to work every day, paid your bills, and raised a family. But as you get older, you are going to be facing new and different challenges…you or your loved one might need long term care in a nursing home.
In Connecticut, the scary reality is that nursing home costs are up to nearly $400 a day. That’s one challenge that could be financially devastating.
Now I know it’s easy to dismiss the idea of long term care planning because no one wants to admit that they might need to be in a nursing home. To help you understand the importance of long term care planning, I like to compare it to homeowner’s insurance.
Just because it’s unlikely that you’re going to have a fire in your house, and you certainly wouldn’t want to have a fire in your house, you don’t go and cancel your homeowner’s insurance. In much the same way, just because it’s unlikely that you’re going to need to be in a nursing home, and you certainly wouldn’t want to be in a nursing home, you don’t avoid planning for long term care costs.
We plan ahead so that you can preserve you’re quality of life while still leaving a legacy for your family. I created this website to help you navigate the changing landscape of long term care planning.
