Riverview, FL Are you a senior dealing with a financial tilt-a-whirl and concerned about the cost of a rehabilitation facility or assisted living? Medicaid is one program that could help you – but the application process can be daunting. Do you have questions about qualifying for Medicaid either in Florida or Ohio? Are you worried about your elderly parents’ legal rights in regards to Medicaid if they are living in Florida or Ohio? Hear FREE answers from noted elder law attorney, Laurie E. Ohall, hosted by the Bridges, the Brandon area’s newest campus-style adult living facility. Laurie E.
