When you land in a nursing home you are stripped of privacy, privilege and power. You are naked and defenseless.

Naked in the Nursing Home: The Woman’s Guide to Paying for Long-Term Care without Going Broke by Marin County financial planner Harold Lustig, of Harold Lustig Estate and Elder Planning Associates has been named a ForeWord Reviews 2011 book of the year finalist in the family and relationships category.
Naked in the Nursing Home aims to provide a guide for long-term care issues. With Armed Forces Day on May 19, help for veterans can be found in Chapter Four of “Naked in the Nursing Home,” which focuses on a little-known monthly pension benefit for wartime veterans who pay for long-term care.
Lustig has devoted his life and career to helping seniors protect their assets and enjoy a higher standard of living in their old age. He focuses on increasing income, reducing tax obligations and simplifying retirement, estate and long-term care planning for the elderly.
Harold L. Lustig's passion for helping the elderly avoid a family financial crisis due to long-term care grew out of personal experience. His father, at age 78, informed Lustig that he had outlived his assets. Six years later, Lustig’s mother became chronically ill. Already out of assets and living on Social Security and a miniscule pension, they struggled with Medicare, the hospital and the nursing facility for help and continuing care. Says Lustig, “Had I known then what I know now, my parents would have qualified for Medicaid and other financial help; their quality of life in the end would have been significantly better.”
Harold L. Lustig and his brother did not see their parents’ needs coming, and out of his own experiences and knowledge, he wrote "Naked in the Nursing Home: The Woman’s Guide to Paying for Long-Term Care without Going Broke". The book presents tips, tools and strategies to help Seniors make smart decisions regarding long-term care for themselves and/or their loved ones, ways to plan and pay for it and how to avoid serious financial mistakes that can destroy health, happiness and a family’s financial security.
Naked in the Nursing Home is available from booksellers everywhere, on Kindle, Nook and other ebook formats.
