You Don’t Have to Go Broke to Get the Care You Need at Home, in Assisted Living or a Nursing Home!

Getting old can be expensive. Without proper planning Seniors’ nest eggs are cracked open and drained dry to pay for the day to day care and help most of us will eventually need.
In this comprehensive and easy-to-understand guide, California elder law attorney Joel Weissler shows how you, or your parents, can afford the expenses of aging.

California in-home and facility based care prices are skyrocketing. Most families are overwhelmed with myth and misinformation when confronting California’s elder care system. This book gives you the full picture you need to plan for future care needs and to react to immediate care needs.

This book helps California Seniors to protect their assets and improve their quality of life while empowering them to pass on their nest eggs to make a difference for their families. You do not need to ‘spend down’ your assets to access comprehensive care benefits. California’s rules are different from those of any other state.

Using engaging case studies and plain English, Attorney Weissler explains:

  • Why Medicare fails the Elderly

  • And More
