A Life Care Plan lightens the load for family caregivers, improves the elder’s quality of life, and even postpones the need for nursing home care.
Similar to traditional elder law firms, we help families in crisis make immediate arrangements for long term care in order to promote an elder’s health and safety. We handle all of the legal work and help families find and pay for the right care, without bankrupting the elder. But, a Life Care Plan from Elder Law Solutions, PLLC offers much more.
First, we support families whose elderly loved ones are still living at home or with family. Our Elder Care Coordinator locates and coordinates needed in-home care and community services. Often, this enables elders to stay in their own homes longer. Our care coordinator also offers family education and serves as the elder’s advocate.
Second, while the elder is still living at home or with family, we develop a plan to address the myriad of legal, financial, health care, housing, and long-term care issues the elder faces. If and when nursing home care is needed, the family already has a plan in place to access public benefits such as Medicaid or Veterans Benefits, as well as to find and pay for needed care. Our advanced planning empowers elders and their families to avoid the asset protection crisis that occurs when last-minute decisions must be made about long term care.
Third, when the elder is in a residential care facility, our care coordinator makes regular visits, maintains the elder’s relationship with the firm, assesses quality of care, and serve as the family’s advocate. If good care is not being provided, our care coordinator may intervene in order to resolve problems before injury occurs, thereby offering reassurance to family members — near and far — that the elder enjoys the highest quality of life.
