Helping You Meet Challenges And Seize Opportunities

Planning For The Future

How will you and your family protect assets, understand the intricacies of Medicaid and Medicare laws, complete trust planning, if appropriate, and complete estate planning including advance directives? How will you and your family properly care for the aging loved one? We understand the intricacies of Medicaid and Medicare laws and will help you preserve the assets that you and/or your family have worked a lifetime to acquire.

Sayer, Regan & Thayer, LLP, has an experienced group of attorneys who help individuals and families facing the challenges that lie ahead.

Attorney Marcia Boyd, based in our Wakefield office in South County, has more than 25 years of experience providing elder law planning, crisis planning and estate planning to clients and their families. Marcia is skilled in handling complex and often confusing legal aspects of health and family issues.

Attorney Melissa Green, based in our Newport County office, has nearly a decade of experience helping clients navigate complex estate plans and Medicaid issues. Melissa provides her clients with strategies that will protect the assets they have worked so hard to preserve.

Needing long term care does not mean that all of your assets will be exhausted. There are several planning strategies available, even after one has entered a nursing home or has started to receive care. There are exceptions to the five-year lookback rule that can be applied in certain situations to preserve assets, even at the last minute.

Our firm will help you understand and navigate the hurdles involved in a variety of elder law concerns, including:

  • Medicaid planning
  • Crisis planning and management
  • Asset preservation
  • Estate planning and advance directives
  • Trust planning to avoid probate or for Medicaid or tax planning
  • Long term care planning
  • Guardianships
  • Saving the family vacation home for future generations
