Mark Schaffer
Attorney Mark Schaffer was the guest speaker at the Goldenheirs Luncheon on April 3.
He is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, and volunteers for Georgia Legal services.
Schaffer presented a great deal of information regarding the multiple financial, health and security concerns facing today’s seniors. Wills, trusts and probate, estate and trust administration, and Social Security issues were all discussed in detail.
Schaffer emphasized the many pros and cons, legalities and technical difficulties a person may encounter when applying for or entering a nursing home while being sponsored by Medicaid.
He also explained the state of Georgia’s position, Medicaid’s position, as well as the position of the individual in matters that pertain to nursing homes.
Schaffer’s practice is in Richmond Hill.
The next meeting of the Goldenheirs will be May 1 at First Baptist Church in Hinesville. All seniors are welcome.
