Asset Protection from the Devastating Costs of Long Term Care


Did you know that an average stay in a nursing home is up to five years? At an average cost of $90,250 per year in Virginia, that is over $450,000! Many people are completely unprepared for such overwhelming costs.

Is this something that you are likely to experience?

Many of our clients say, “I am never going into a nursing home.” But, statistically, if you are single and over age 65, there is a 50% chance of a stay in a long-term-care facility, and a married couple has a 70% chance of one of them spending some time in a nursing home or other long-term-care facility.

We help you look at your options. Is long term care insurance right for you? Can you afford it? Many of our clients choose an Asset Protection Trust to protect themselves and their loved ones from the devastating costs of long term care, so that their life’s savings are not completely wiped out. The key is to plan now, rather than to react later. We can help you plan, as we have done for hundreds of families throughout Virginia.

Give us a call today, and come to one of our free educational workshops to learn more. Please don’t wait until you are out of options.

I can say that I worked with Simon and his professional, awesome team and they have put my mind and heart to ease. Highly recommend.

We’ve known Simon for the last 2-3 years he has worked with us to resolve a number of complex family issues. Simon’s manner is gentle, kind and reassuring; he instills confidence. We have great peace of mind knowing that he’s there for us. We have recommended him and will continue to do so we consider him more than just our attorney.

Gene and Kim Y.
Scottsville, VA

Met when needed legal assistance for multiple family issues. Defined and proceeded to structure medical, trusts and will to protect wife, son, and grandchildren. Also, have amended my trust and feel it’s important to join the C.F.C. Plan [the Client and Family Care Plan] for other expected services.
You owe it to your beneficiaries to have your life’s/death’s plans defined.

Robert M.

I found Mr. Stapleton very calm, thoughtful and a good listener. He helped me with my questions and concerns.

Jan B.

Lovely, beautiful people. Jeannie is always friendly and pleasant and informative. The office has perfect lighting, and we’re always offered tea or coffee. The whole experience, though it could be a time of anxiety, becomes a very loving, relaxing experience. Who knew that taking care of our family’s future and “late” life business could be such a nurturing, caring experience?

Edie G.

Great experience with Simon! He was efficient and professional. I can relax knowing that (my planning) is well taken care of.
