Life Care Planning
An Elder-Centered Approach to
the Challenges Created by Long Life.
Life Care Planning is a holistic, elder-centered approach to the practice of law that helps families respond to every challenge caused by chronic illness or disability of a loved one.
A LIFE CARE PLAN IS DESIGNED TO ACHIEVE
THREE PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:
- Make sure your family member 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 resources to help pay for long term care
- Offer peace of mind that results when the right choices are made to ensure loved ones are safe and getting the right care while preserving family resources.
A Life Care Plan defines, organizes, prioritizes, and mobilizes every aspect of an elder’s care. In addition to traditional asset-focused elder law services such as estate planning, asset preservation, and public benefits planning, a Life Care Plan typically includes provisions for care coordination, family education, health care and financial decision-making, care advocacy, crisis intervention, and other services.
