Anyone is qualified for life care planning. A life care plan will help your family manage your or your loved one’s chronic, progressive, or terminal illness or disability. This type of comprehensive plan helps ensure you or your aging family member gets the care they need, both today and in the future. These plans address a number of contingencies and help prevent common elder law concerns from becoming a crisis for your family.
In New Jersey, Bratton Estate and Elder Care Attorneys can help you understand the benefits of life care planning and build a plan that meets your family’s needs. Call us today at 856-857-6007 to get started.
Who Needs a Life Care Plan?
Many of our clients are adult children whose parents suffer from a progressive or chronic illness, or who recently suffered disabling injuries in a fall or from a stroke. In general, there are four reasons why your loved one might be qualified for life care planning:
- They recently suffered an injury or received a diagnosis
- You note a decline in their health and ability to remain independent
- You worry you cannot provide the level of care they need because you lack the time or training
- You are not sure how you will afford their future care needs
If you currently have any of these concerns, or believe you may in the future, go ahead and give us a call. We can help you sign up for one of our life care planning seminars or answer your questions. Depending on your needs, our life care planning attorneys may be able to help you out with crisis intervention for any current issues and then create a life care plan for the future.
We can also make a life care plan for you, protecting your family members from needing to make tough decisions down the road.
Understanding How a Life Care Plan Works
Life care planning addresses several concerns regarding your or your loved one’s current and future needs. This includes:
- Care coordination based on your or their needs
- Health care decision-making
- Crisis prevention and intervention
- Family support
- Financial planning
A life care plan that is well designed to meet your or your loved one’s and your family’s needs can serve many purposes. Primarily, this includes:
- Ensuring your or your aging loved one gets the appropriate level of care to maintain their health and quality of life for as long as possible
- Planning how to pay for advancing levels of care, including in-home care, nursing home care, and care in other long-term care facilities
- Medicaid planning and asset protection, when appropriate
- Reducing conflict over financial or health decisions between members of your family
- Offering your entire family peace of mind about your health, safety, and well-being or that of your loved one
