Who Needs a Life Care Plan in Egg Harbor Township?
Anyone can benefit from life care planning, but most of the clients who call us for this type of comprehensive plan are already facing a decline in their health or recently received a devastating diagnosis. Others recently dealt with this with a loved one and want to prevent their spouse and children from having to experience it as well.
We can help you if you:
- Suffered a stroke, heart attack, or other significant medical concern
- Suffered fall injuries/are at a higher risk of falling
- Recently received a devastating diagnosis
- Suffer from a mobility or sensory impairment
- Suffer from a degenerative condition
- Are unable to practice appropriate self-care
- Have signs of dementia or other memory-related conditions
- Want to be proactive about your future
No matter your current or future health care needs, a Life Care Plan can help. We can begin with the care you need today — even if your health is already declining — and plan the contingencies you may require in the future. It is always the right time for life care planning.
At Bratton Law, we make life care planning a very personalized process. We listen to your questions and concerns and address them as plainly as possible. We also get to know you and your family, discussing your priorities and preferences and using what we learn to craft a Life Care Plan that meets your family’s needs.
Understanding the Benefits of New Jersey Life Care Planning
When creating a Life Care Plan for you or a beloved family member, we focus on several priorities:
- Your current and future health care and legal needs
- Maintaining the appropriate level of care no matter the progression of your condition
- Maintaining the quality of life and the dignity you deserve
- Helping your family pay for nursing home or in-home care
- Preserving assets for your heirs, when possible
- Providing coordinating care services and client advocacy
As we walk you through the process of creating a comprehensive Life Care Plan, we hope you will begin to see many benefits of having this type of plan in place. Among the most important to many of our clients are:
Peace of Mind
When there is a plan in place that ensures you control your future and does not force your spouse or children to make decisions about your continued safety and comfort, it brings with it peace of mind for everyone involved. You know you did the best thing possible for your loved ones, and they know exactly what you would want, and how to accomplish it, every step of the way.
The Plan Adapts as Your Needs Change
Your Life Care Plan offers a roadmap to help ensure your care changes as your needs change. By discussing some contingencies during the planning process, your plan will address almost any possible scenario. This is key in giving you the best quality of life possible, even as your condition, impairment, or age progresses.
Medicaid Planning and Asset Protection
Most families can only afford nursing home or assisted living care through Medicaid, VA, or other public health care benefits. However, to qualify for most of these benefits, you need to spend down your assets leaving little for your spouse or your heirs to inherit. When building your Life Care Plan, we will look at your situation and may be able to develop a legal strategy to protect some or all your assets while letting you qualify for Medicaid sooner.
Compassionate Support: The Bratton Law Difference
We believe our interdisciplinary approach to elder care and Life Care Planning facilitates an easier decision-making process. Because our team includes social workers and a registered nurse, in addition to elder care lawyers, we can provide support and insight not available at many other firms.
When considering your current and future needs, we can:
- Help you understand the possible progression of your condition
- Explain the type of care you may need in the future
- Address your concerns about the level of care or quality of life
- Put a plan in place to help you pay for your care
- Protect your family’s financial future
We understand you do not want to place a financial or emotional burden on your family, no matter your future medical or support needs. We can put a plan in place that outlines your wishes in almost any situation and allows your family to just look at the plan when your needs change.
