Whether your loved one with special needs is an adult or a child, John can help your family. John will work as an advocate for your loved one throughout his or her life: from on-going decision making, applying for Supplemental Security Income and Medicaid, to setting up trusts. Setting up a Special Needs Trust can be done during a persons lifetime or through a Will. This Trust can reduce the strain on the rest of the family as it cares for a loved one with special needs.
Special Needs Plans
Special Needs plans help preserve government benefits while having loved ones cared for in all areas of their life: financial, educational and medical, and most importantly, their emotional and personal needs in the future.
Parents and family members of special needs children often live in fear and are haunted by the following questions: How do I make sure my child with special needs will be taken care of when I'm gone? Will government programs be interrupted when I die? John can help mitigate those risks, allay those fears, and put in place strategies to make sure your loved one is taken care of.
John combines superior knowledge and experience with kindness, compassion and care. He helps your loved one and the Family. These are difficult times and need a soft hand.
Connecticut and New York have some unique laws so the results can be slightly different if you live in Easton or North Salem.
