No doubt you know what the word “standstill means.”  For our purposes here, imagine you are stuck in mud up to your knees.  Try as you might, you just can’t move.  Taking one step forward is a major undertaking, and is basically impossible.

stuck in mud

Perhaps you’ve experienced such a “standstill” scenario before in your life.  An event has come up, perhaps unexpectedly, and it has thrown you for a loop to the point that taking the next step has you stymied.

It can happen to the best of us, especially as we age and begin to feel as if life is slipping away bit by bit.  Where we were once in our 30’s, 40’s and 50’s and felt like the world was ours for the taking, things now such as health challenges or the prospect of this as we get up in years, has put us in one of those “standstill” moments.   As well, the uncertainty of how to pay for such a health related threat can further add to one’s anxiety.

Yet there are things we can still do to put us back in charge; to make us feel like we are calling the shots and not letting events and/or fear place us at a disadvantage.  A major step here is deciding to place you in the best positional possible to deal with life’s potential challenges, or at least the threat of them.

The key is arming you with knowledge.  As the saying goes, “just the facts.”  The Stano Law Firm’s chief aim is to give you the facts, regarding these real health care/financial challenges we all will face sooner or later.  For example, if care in a nursing home or an assisted living facility is needed, how will it be paid for?

These costs can run into thousands of dollars per month.  Why worry about where this money will come from when steps can be taken today to make sure these expenses are taken care of, and your peace of mind remains intact.  And for those in the assisted living or nursing facility profession, there are steps you can take when folks get in touch with you to find out more about what you have to offer, and how best to cover the costs.   Here you can serve as a place of knowledge and assistance to them, and earn their trust and respect.

We take pride at being a resource for everyone involved, be it an individual, a family, or people working in the long-term care community.  Through things like our free seminars for the public, to our out-reach program to local nursing and assisted living facilities (featuring former long-term care staff member Barb Kornuc), we want to be your go-to source for information, guidance and assistance.

By working together we can provide the highest quality of life both before long-term care is needed and after the fact as well.   For more details call us at 440-888-6448 or visit us at
