What is Life-Care Planning?

We can help caregivers manage critical issues and to make the best choices for their loved one. Families benefit, from personalized services that offer one on one consultations, educational materials, dedicated website, community workshops, and direct referrals for health and financial issues pertaining to all areas of care.
The Life Care Plan is at the heart of the elder-centered law practice.
A Life Care Plan is an approach that defines, organizes, prioritizes, and mobilizes every aspect of an elder’s care for the future. In addition to traditional asset focused elder law services such as estate planning, asset protection and public benefits qualification, a Life-Care Plan typically includes provisions for care Coordination, family education and decision-making, nursing home advocacy, crisis intervention support and other services.
Every life care plan is designed to achieve three primary objectives:
1. Make sure the elder gets appropriate care, whether at home or in a residential facility, to maintain the quality of life that he or she desires.
2. Locate public and private sources to help pay for long-term care while resolving issues created by the high cost of care.
3. Offer peace of mind that comes from making choices to ensure that loved ones are safe and getting the right care while preserving family resources.
You need to ask yourself not just what happens to my assets when I die, but rather,….
“What Happens to My Assets if I don’t die
but instead become sick and lose my mental or physical capacity
and need Long Term, Nursing Home, Care?”
