It's never too late (or early) to plan for long-term care.
Preparing for long-term care shouldn't keep falling to the bottom of your to-do list. Let's talk about what options and benefits you may qualify for, now or in the future. You might be surprised at what benefits you may be eligible for already.

Of course, no one plans on going to a nursing home. Proactively planning for long-term care can help you...
"Ari Sommer at Harrison & Johnston is a wealth of knowledge, professionalism, and thoughtfulness when it comes to elder law! Never too early to think about what happens when you near the end of your life. He is the guy to talk to!"
- Katie Moody
"When you work with Ari Sommer, you will find that he is who you would consider above and beyond any expectations of a lawyer. We hired Ari Sommer to help my parents when my dad had dementia and he needed long term nursing care; my mom did not need that type of care. Essentially, they had to split while still being married. This happens so many times with the elderly. From the moment we met Ari Sommer he became a guardian angel to my parents and my sisters and me. You expect someone to do what is typical in creating a will etc., but Ari Sommer did so much more. He presented meticulous information to allow supporting agencies such as Medicaid to make quick and concise decisions to secure my parents living conditions as well as financially. I know I may sound repetitive, but I watched Ari as not only did he dot his "i’s” and cross his "t’s” but he created a road map with precise information and directions to allow agencies to quickly make decisions in my parents favor without having these agencies to ask for further information which would have delaying the outcome for my parents. Time is essential in these matters. He is highly intelligent, compassionate, and caring, and he also went way, way past that. He looked at their situation along with other laws in place and felt that somethings needed to change. After his detailed analysis, he sought after remedies that would protect my parents and their assets. He actually developed a new way to apply a law that can benefit people in Virginia and in doing so, allowed my mother and father to financially be secure and safe. Again, I am repeating myself, but I have never seen someone like him and the way his mind worked. He theorized and meticulously presented information to judges and developed a new application of the law to help not only my parents but others who may be in similar situations in the future. So, do I recommend Ari Sommer you better believe it. I only wish there were more people out there like him and yes, I wish I was more like Ari Sommer and I am a business owner of 20 years. To say he is my hero is not stated without fact, he defines heroism. He took care of my parents when my sisters and I did not know how to. He took that weight off my sisters and I and my parents as we trusted him to protect and serve my parents For that Ari Sommer you are my hero and I cannot thank you so much for the way you compassionately took care of my parents and treated them with the fight and determination with love, gentleness, and reassurance you gave to my parents during this time."

"I first started working with Ari during a very difficult time. My father had fallen and broken his hip and was unable to return to his home to live. I needed to get him placed in a nursing home and on Medicaid as quickly as possible. I contacted Ari and immediately knew he was the right attorney to help me in this process. Not only is he a very smart and talented attorney, he is kind, authentic, personable and approachable. Never once did he make me feel that I asked a stupid question. He explained things to me in terms I could understand. He really cares about his clients and treats them as people not “cases”. I’m very happy with his service and highly recommend him. "
