What is Life Care Planning?


Life Care Planning is a holistic, elder-centered approach to the practice of law that helps families respond to challenges caused by chronic illness or disability of an elderly loved one.  At the heart is a Life Care Plan which defines, organizes, prioritizes, and mobilizes every aspect of an elder’s care.  Our goal is to make sure that the elder receive appropriate care, locate private and public resources to help pay for long-term care and offer peace of mind that results in the right choices to ensure the loved ones are safe and getting the right care while preserving family resources.

The goal of Life Care Planning is to promote and maintain the good health, safety and well-being, and quality of life of elders and their families.  Elders and their families get access to a wider variety of options for care as well as knowledgeable guidance from a team of compassionate advisors who strive to help them make the best choices about every aspect of their loved one’s well being.
