Planning for the future can be stressful. There is no way to know what lies ahead, but it’s alarming when you consider that 70% of people over 65 will need some form of long-term care, and that nursing homes cost $125,000 a year.  Without proper planning, the money you worked so hard for your whole life could quickly vanish, leaving you completely vulnerable.

At Vasiliadis Pappas we want to help you preserve your wealth, while ensuring you receive the type of long-term care you want and need. However, that can be challenging as the laws regarding estate planning, asset protection and long-term care are complicated and constantly changing. That’s why it’s important to work with someone you trust, that understands the law and can help you navigate the system. At Vasiliadis Pappas we provide you with peace of mind as we guide you through the process and help you make the right decisions for you and your family.

How Do We Do This?

Every situation is different so we take the time to listen and understand your concerns and challenges.  Then we recommend an appropriate solution. This might include assisting a loved one to qualify for benefits to pay for nursing home care; tax & estate planning; setting up and administering trusts; helping with veteran’s benefits; or legal planning for persons with special needs.

At Vasiliadis Pappas our team of legal professionals are dedicated to helping you achieve your financial and personal goals related to aging, incapacity, and the transfer of wealth to the next generation.

We’ve helped thousands of families in the Lehigh Valley and we look forward to helping yours!
