Life Care Planning

Life Care Planning is a holistic, approach to the practice of law that helps families, healthy and with challenges, with legal and care planning. Life Care Planning Law Firms (LCPLF)* rely on an inter-disciplinary team that works to identify present and potential future legal and care needs, assist in locating appropriate care, and emphasize high-quality care.

To identify legal planning issues, we help families understand the natural progression of aging and its impact on a loved one’s health, mobility, housing, and financial resources. In addition to traditional asset-focused elder law services such as incapacity planning (powers of attorney, trusts, etc.), estate planning (wills, trusts, etc.), asset preservation, and public benefits qualification, a Life Care Plan also includes care advisors that assist with individual/family education.

When identifying care planning issues, the team focuses on the health, safety, well-being, and quality of life/care of a person and their families. They get access to a wider variety of options for care, as well as knowledgeable guidance from a team of compassionate advisors who empower clients to make the best choices. Every Life Care Plan is designed to achieve 3 primary objectives:

  1. Help identify appropriate care, whether at home or in a residential facility, to maintain the quality of life that he or she desires
  2. Assist in locating public and private sources to help pay for long-term care while resolving issues created by the high cost of care
  3. Offer peace of mind as you engage professionals to enhance your understanding of the legal/care options and continue to address your questions as the individual’s circumstances change
