The Life Care Planning Process Creates a Comprehensive Plan
Life care planning is a good option for those who suffered a catastrophic injury, who have a diagnosis of a progressive or terminal illness, or who worry the overall effects of aging may keep them from making important decisions later on. Life care planning addresses a wide variety of topics, including care needs both today and in the future. Some of the major topics covered by a comprehensive life care plan include:
- Medical care and ongoing care needs and support
- Financial accounts, investments, and asset protection
- End-of-life care
- Quality of life
In addition to walking you through the life care planning process and developing a unique plan to meet your needs, our team will also serve as an advocate for you and your family in the future. We can help you with coordinated care services, elder law needs, and other related tasks. We will also explain your rights under Medicaid and discuss how to pay for long-term care.

Many Families Can Benefit from Abington, PA Life Care Planning
When faced with a significant medical issue or injury, or you are diagnosed with a serious illness, it is only natural to feel overwhelmed and uncertain. It is one of the most devastating things anyone can go through, both for the individual and for their family. As life care planning lawyers, however, we have found that we can reduce stress and help people feel better by putting a plan in place for their current and future care.
While life care planning is appropriate for anyone with a chronic, progressive, or terminal diagnosis, we often see families who have a loved one who recently experienced:
- A heart attack, stroke, or another serious medical emergency
- Beginning or forgoing treatment for a terminal illness
- Suffering major impairments following an accident
- Suffering debilitating fall injuries, including broken bones
- A worsening of Alzheimer’s, dementia, or a similar condition
- A loss of vision
- Other problems that make it difficult or impossible to live independently
At Bratton Estate & Elder Care Attorneys, we believe your family could enjoy the benefits of life care planning if your loved one experienced any of these issued or has another medical issue that requires long-term care. Call (856) 857-6007 today to get started.
