The Ultimate Protection for Seniors and their Loved Ones
Life Care Planning is a new, creative way of providing integrated solutions to the challenges presented by living longer, chronic illness and/or a long-term disability.
The essential approach is to bundle services such as asset protection, public benefits qualifications, care coordination (whether in the home or in a senior community) and crisis intervention services into a comprehensive package. With the assistance of a Life Care Planning team that will work closely with seniors and their families, appropriate services may be identified and sourced to support the senior’s quality of life and protection.
The cornerstone of a senior-centered law practice, a Life Care Plan, defines, organizes, prioritizes, and mobilizes every aspect of a senior’s care.
In addition to traditional asset-focused elder law services such as estate planning, asset preservation, and public benefits qualification, a Life Care Plan typically includes provisions for care coordination, family education, health care and financial decision-making, care advocacy, crisis intervention, support and other services.
Every Life Care Plan is designed to achieve three primary objectives:
- 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
- Locate public and private sources to help pay for long-term care while resolving issues created by the high cost of care.
- Offer peace of mind that results when the right choices are made to ensure loved ones are safe and receiving the right care while preserving family resources.
