Life Care Plans Benefits Everyone in Your Family
While anyone can benefit from working with our Life Care Planning team, many of the people we work with already face a terminal or chronic diagnosis or are trying to help their loved one who is. In general, some of the most common reasons our clients consider discussing life planning with us include:
- They recently suffered a stroke, cardiovascular event, or other similar medical concern
- They suffered fall injuries, often including broken hips or other broken bones
- They recently received a terminal or chronic diagnosis
- They suffer from a mobility or sensory impairment, such as blindness
- They received a diagnosis of a degenerative condition
- They exhibit signs of dementia or other memory-related conditions
When you work with Bratton Estate & Elder Care Attorneys to create a comprehensive Life Care Plan, we will listen to your questions and concerns, and explain the answers in an easy-to-understand way. We will sit down with you, discussing your family’s unique priorities and preferences to determine the best comprehensive plan that meets your current and future needs.
Understanding the Benefits of a New Jersey Life Care Plan
Depending on your exact needs and possible future needs, we have several priorities we consider when we create a Life Care Plan in New Jersey. This includes:
- Your current and potential future health care and legal needs
- Maintaining the appropriate level of care for the rest of your life
- Maintaining a high quality of life and the dignity you deserve
- Helping to fund nursing home or in-home care
- Preserving assets for your family, when possible
- Providing coordinating care services
- Advocating for your best interests
Life Care Plans come with many benefits, not only for you but your family as well. These may include:
Peace of Mind
Peace of mind is something that is difficult to buy. Having a plan in place for your family’s financial future, your future care, and the care you get for the rest of your life can significantly reduce stress and anxiety. At the same time, you know your loved ones will not face difficult decisions about your care. All they need to do is consult your Life Care Plan.
The Plan Changes as Your Needs Change
In many ways, your Life Care Plan serves as a sort of roadmap for how you want things to go in the short-term and long-term future. We will discuss several contingencies in our meetings and create a personalized plan to help your family navigate almost any scenario. We will advocate for you and want to ensure you receive adequate medical care and the best quality of life possible as you age.
Medicaid Planning and Asset Protection
Many families must rely on Medicaid, Veterans Affairs benefits, or other public health care benefits to fund nursing home or other long-term care. To qualify for Medicaid, our clients often believe they will need to spend down their assets and leave the financial future of their heirs uncertain. However, Medicaid planning and asset protection is a part of any comprehensive Life Care Plan.
We can often put a legal strategy in place that allows you or a loved one to protect assets from Medicaid while also obtaining approval for these important benefits sooner.

Our interdisciplinary team includes not only elder care lawyers but also social workers, a certified dementia practitioner and a registered nurse. This allows us to approach life care planning from a unique vantage point, offering compassionate support and knowledgeable guidance through every step of the decision-making process.

- Explain the possible progression of your condition
- Help you understand the levels of available care and support
- Address your concerns about your future
- Put a plan in place to help you pay for all necessary care
- Protect your family’s financial future
We understand how hard it is to know that your family may one day need to aid with activities of daily living and that you may worry you are a financial and emotional burden to your spouse and children.
