Senior Services in Superior, WI
Seniors often want to remain independent for as long as possible, even as they age. The Aging and Disability Resource Center for Superior, WI can help. This Center provides information about programs for seniors and can be reached via phone at (715) 395-1234.
Unfortunately, there may come a time when you are no longer able to remain fully independent. You may need nursing home care or home healthcare aides to come to your home and help with activities of daily living. If you need only routine help, rather than skilled nursing care, Medicare and private insurance generally don’t pay anything towards your care.
The Law Office of Yvonne Michaud Novak can help you to make sure you don’t have to pay for a nursing home or long term care at home out of your own pocket by assisting you in making a plan to get your benefits covered by means-tested Medicaid without impoverishing yourself first. Medicaid does pay for nursing home care and long term care, but without a Medicaid plan, you may have too many resources to get benefits.
Probate Courts in Superior, WI
The Law Office of Yvonne Michaud Novak helps with the creation of an estate plan that often makes it possible for assets to transfer outside the probate process so loved ones don’t need to go through the stress of probate. We also help make an incapacity plan so there’s no need to go to probate court to have a guardian or conservator named in case of incapacity.
There are, however, still times when someone in your life passes away without a probate avoidance plan or when you need a guardian named to act on behalf of a loved one.
If you are going to probate court due to the death or incapacity of a Superior, WI resident, it will be the Douglas County court located at 1313 Belknap Street in Superior, WI 54880. You can reach this court at 715-395-1341.
