Since our office is in Cincinnati, we can be easily reached by people that live in Hamilton, Ohio. If you are a Hamilton senior, there are a number of local resources that you may want to take advantage of at one time or another. We have aggregated them here, and we also point you toward some useful information that is available through our firm.
Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio
Some of the most valuable resources that we have here in our area are provided by the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio. This is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to the well-being of senior citizens. They educate elders and their families about these programs and services for seniors:
- Home and Community Based Care Options
- Aging and Disability Resources
- Caregiver Support and Education
- Senior Wellness Programs
In addition to the above, the Council advises their clients about additional services that are available under the Older American Act.
Community First Solutions
Another organization that does great things for senior citizens in Butler County is Community First Solutions. They are a not-for-profit entity that offers assistance for elders on many different levels.
Their wellness centers facilitate different forms of exercise, and professional trainers provide guidance. They also have social programs, and they organize outings to special events and nearby attractions.
Elder Law/Medicaid Report and Term Definitions
Elder law attorneys help people address long-term care costs. If you require a stay in a nursing home or assisted living community, Medicare will not pick up the tab. This gap in the coverage also applies to in-home care provided by a skilled nurse or health aide.
Medicaid is another government-administered health care insurance program, and it will pay for long-term custodial care. It is the solution for most people, but it takes careful planning to qualify, because there are low income and asset limits.
We have a couple of very valuable resources that you can access through this website to get all the details. Our attorneys have prepared a special report on this subject, and we have an accompanying page that provides definitions of relevant terms. If you read this information, you will go forward with a good understanding of the importance of Medicaid planning.
Free Medicaid Planning Seminars
Written information is great, but there is no substitute for a direct interaction with a licensed elder law attorney. We offer informative estate planning and Medicaid planning seminars on an ongoing basis, and you can really learn a lot if you attend one of these sessions. There is no admission charge, and you can visit our seminar page to get all details.
