As someone searching for good advice, while you may obtain good information from a newspaper columnist, the right advice can be particularly hard to come by when it's regarding the subject of Medicaid and nursing homes.

However, planning for issues such as incapacity or long-term care are very important issues and an important aspect of the services provided by "elder law attorneys."
