Help is on the way. A new set of challenges awaits as we grow older: Incapacity, the specter of mortality and nursing home care. Our primary focus since 1990 has been to help our clients avoid the financial ruin of long-term care expenses. The average cost of nursing home care in Florida is above $10,000 per month. If the nursing home is part of your reality, you must take action or be wiped out financially.
