National Medicaid expert speaks Oct. 28

Rob Richardson will be the featured speaker at an educational seminar for seniors presented by Senior Security of Rockford at 5 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 28 at Giovanni’s, 610 N. Bell School Rd., Rockford.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling 1-800-967-3212. Cost is $10 per person, due at the door.

Richardson, from Temple, Pa., is a nationally-recognized expert on nursing home spend-down and Medicaid planning.

“It is our goal to provide information and resources to Rockford-area residents about options they have with regards to nursing home and Medicaid planning,” said Chuck Hansen of Senior Security. “With the average cost for nursing homes in this area being $50,000 per year, it is clear to see why hundreds of local area seniors are forced into poverty each year.

“I and my clients regularly benefit from Mr. Richardson’s thorough research into the Medicaid rules and guidelines for Illinois, and I am delighted to be able to offer the opportunity for our area’s residents and elected officials to hear from him firsthand how the rules of Medicaid can be followed to protect one’s life-savings and assets,” Hansen added.

Senior Security focuses on helping seniors build, protect and preserve their assets. Information: 397-9815.
