This community service event presented the pressing issues of Medicare D and elder affairs to society members and key clients. Elder law and estate planning attorney Cynthia Sharp, Esquire, served as featured guest speaker at the affair. Her topics of discussion addressed such urgent concerns as long-term care, nursing home financing and Medicaid qualification.

With the breakfast meeting's focus being Medicare Part D and elder services, Cynthia Sharp, Esquire's professional qualifications made her the obvious choice for featured guest speaker. That's because The Sharp Law Firm's major areas of concentration are estate and elder law. When it comes to asset protection, Attorney Sharp is extremely qualified to address the subject, and the New Jersey Society of CPAs provided her with the perfect forum to share her knowledge on the subject. By addressing accountants and financial planners, the very same professionals who witness these concerns on a daily basis with their clients, she was able to reach out to the people who need her expertise the most.
The event was billed as a means of helping individuals overcome the shock they experience when faced with the staggering cost of long-term care, and staggering they are indeed. Experts estimate that in 1993, the average nursing home cost was over $45,000 per person per year. According to a GE Financial survey, by 2003 that figure had risen to $57,700, representing a 28% increase in just 10 years. Cynthia Sharp of The Sharp Law Firm can certainly relate to the disbelief these numbers evoke.
Grappling the bull by its horns, Sharp's New Jersey Society of CPAs' Mercer County talk centered on the subject of asset protection. More specifically, she addressed such timely topics as long-term care costs, nursing home financing alternatives, Medicaid qualification and planning, various levels of care, the latest usage of annuities in Medicaid planning and, finally, how the new Medicaid laws impact CPAs and their clients. CPAs attending the breakfast meeting were encouraged to invite clients, prospects and other individuals or professionals with a specific interest in the subject, thus enabling Sharp to spread her wealth of eldercare knowledge to a wide audience.
