Life care planning refers to an increasingly popular elder-centric approach to the law that enables families to plan for challenges that all-too-often accompany aging. An interdisciplinary team works together to identify needs, current and future, and creates a plan to take on these challenges as they arise.
If you’re not comfortable operating in “crisis mode,” life care planning is likely a great fit for your family. This kind of planning is all about planning ahead.
For most people, having a plan in place is comforting and provides a sense of security. It doesn't hurt to consult an elder care law expert who has experience with this specific planning and find out what solution best fits your needs.
A life care plan is created by an interdisciplinary team consisting of an experienced elder care attorney, medical professionals, case managers, and patients and their families. After a comprehensive review of available medical records, this team will interview the patient and assess the home. Upon consulting the health care providers and researching specific care needs, the team considers relevant research literature and reviews medical costs.
The heart of any elder-centric law practice, a life care plan is an invaluable tool that defines, organizes, and prioritizes the many moving parts of an elder’s future care, whether it’s related to a long-term illness or simply a result of aging.
When there’s a life care plan in place, the moment care is required, the plan is put in motion. You or your loved one won’t be put into crisis mode— there’s no scrambling to find a solution, whether it’s the right fit or not.
