  • I cannot begin to express with words how grateful I am . . .
    Donna Crawford, Fair Grove, MO

    My parents moved in with my husband and me, on a temporary basis, in the fall of 2007 due to failing health.  My Dad was the one who always managed their affairs and did so quite efficiently.  Due to his declining health it became more and more necessary for me to become involved in their care both physically and financially.  My Dad passed away in 2008 in our home.   My Mother, having health issues of her own along with the diagnosis of early Alzheimer’s, was unable to return to her own home.  Mom never wanted to go to a nursing home and as long as I could provide the care she needed we agreed that our home was to become hers as well.   It was at that time that I realized I needed to seek legal counsel to help me navigate the legalities of guarding the assets she and my Dad had worked so hard for.   My desire was to care for my Mom in my home as long as possible all the while knowing that at some future time a residential care center was a real, distinct and looming probability.   Some dear friends recommended Thad Taylor of Midwest Elder Law Firm.  From our initial phone conversation I knew that God, in His divine providence, had directed me to Mr. Taylor.   At our first meeting, Thad answered many questions in a forthright and understandable manner and assisted me in considering options that were available to me to keep my Mother at home as long as I could possibly care for her needs.  At our next meeting he drove to my home to meet my Mother and to hear first hand her wishes.  That spoke volumes to both my Mother and me!   Thad drew up the necessary documents and Mom lived with me until the day did come when I, along with other family members, made the most difficult decision we have ever made in our lives:  to place my Mom in a residential care center.  Even during this time, Thad was supportive of our decision and was there with the legal advice needed to provide for her continued care.   As Alzheimer’s gradually claimed the majority of my Mom’s ability to communicate intelligibly, I became her voice in every area of her life.  As her power of attorney I became increasingly concerned should something suddenly happen to me.  Again, Thad drafted the proper legal forms needed to guarantee Mom would be cared for in the event that should happen.  I truly feel that Thad’s knowledge and understanding of the law gave me the assurance I was doing all that I possibly could to provide for my Mother and for her care the way my Dad would have wanted.   When God chose to call my Mother home, Thad was only a phone call away with the legal advice I needed, as the trustee of their estate, to properly carry out my parent’s final wishes.   Decisions children make in regards to their parents care are some of the most grueling decisions they will ever make.  I cannot begin to express with words how grateful I am to Thad and his staff for being there for me during those difficult days, weeks, months and years.   I highly recommend Thad and Midwest Elder Law Firm!  They truly fulfilled their mission in helping me navigate through a very stormy season of my life with my aging Mother . . . and they did it with comfort, dignity and grace just as they say!Donna Crawford Fair Grove, MO

  • WHAT A LAW FIRM!!
    John, Sedalia, MO

    I moved my wife to Missouri from a nursing facility in Alabama where she had been previously approved for Medicaid for four years. I had located a facility for her and visited the local Family Services office to begin the application process for MoHealthnet (Medicaid). After being told by a caseworker that the process was very simple and rapid as my wife had been previously approved for Medicaid in another state, the move took place and the application was sent in. I felt confident all was well. I was mistaken. After many calls to the Family Support Division, and reassurances by the staff that all was good with the application, I sold my home in Alabama and moved to Missouri to be closer to the woman I've been married to for forty years. One month after closing on my home here, the application was denied in November 2013. This left me with a $40,000 nursing home bill. Needless to say, I was in deep trouble and realized I needed professional help. I went online and looked for someone who could help. After many phone conversations with different law offices, I spoke with Sandra at Midwest Elder Law Firm in Columbia. She told me about Thad's experience as a supervising attorney for administrative hearing reviews for these types of cases prior to opening the law firm and was sure he could help. I made an appointment to meet with Thad. In our first meeting, Thad looked at my application and supporting documentation and put me at ease. While each case is different, he made me feel comfortable about the process. The first step was to request a hearing and submit a new application. He went with me to the hearing and presented a concise, professional and forceful argument. Although I expressed concern after the hearing, he was calm and told me he felt the hearing went well. He continued to work on the case and the hearing review board found the state process was flawed and ordered the Agency to reconsider the original case. After many back and forth sessions with the state by him, it was done. Thad called me on the 5th of May and told me the original application had been approved and that payment to the nursing home would be back to the original application date of April 1, 2013. While I was ecstatic over the result, the real story is in the dollar amount he saved me and my family. His hard work, dedication, attention to detail, and professionalism saved us over $65,000 in back payments to the nursing home. The relatively small fee paid to this office saved me much more than money. It saved my health and ensured that my wife would be taken care of. I can now sleep at night knowing I no longer have to worry about how I am going to care for my wife. I continue to ask for his assistance for the annual reviews of her eligibility and for financial planning for the family. Clearly the most professional and personable office I've ever been associated with. I can only say, if you need help, CALL MIDWEST ELDER LAW FIRM and speak with them. You'll be glad you did!John Sedalia, MO
