We help older people in Maine and their families, both in and out of state, evaluate their needs, options and develop an appropriate plan to:

  • Preserve homes, farms, camps and savings against nursing home expenses and taxes
  • Remain financially secure
  • Remain independent for as long as possible
  • Access health and long term care
  • Reduce estate taxes and income taxes
  • Obtain insurance and public benefits, including MaineCare (Maine Medicaid), Medicare, Medicare supplemental insurance and long term care insurance
  • Protect spouses, disabled children and others
  • Plan for proper management of their affairs in the event of incapacity or death.

How we help:
