Pooled Supplemental Needs Trust: 
How a Trust Could Make Long-Term Care in the Home Possible for Your Loved One

Family caregivers are invited to attend a presentation on Wednesday, January 6 from 1:30 – 2:30 pm by phone or zoom.  “Pooled Supplemental Needs Trust” will be presented by Brian Lawrence with LIFE, Inc. Pooled Trust Services. 

For many, the cost of home care is prohibitive, and Medicare does not currently cover long-term care needs in the home. Medicaid with a spend down is an option but people often struggle to pay their expenses when paying a large spenddown.

A Pooled Trust is a way for those with income and/or assets above the Medicaid eligibility levels to eliminate the Medicaid spend-down that would be required to receive Medicaid. A Pooled Trust could make it possible for the one you’re caring for to remain in their home environment instead of moving to a facility. The presenter will provide an overview of how a Supplemental Needs Trust works to determine if it’s right for your caregiver situation.

Pre-registration is required; please call (607) 778- 2411.
