Life Care Planning - A New Approach to an Old Problem

Life Care Planning is a revolutionary new way to respond to the challenges created by long life, long-term illness or disability. A Life Care Plan spells out how our Elder Law Attorney and Elder Care Coordinator (an experienced RN specializing in geriatric care management) will help you get the best possible care for your loved one in the least restrictive environment --- while preserving your loved one's wealth to the greatest extent possible. Life Care Planning To An Old Problem

Bundling asset protection, public benefits qualification, care coordination, nursing home advocacy and crisis intervention services into a convenient package, a Life Care Plan is the ultimate protection for elders and those who love them.

Preserve Family Life

A Life Care Plan helps you resolve the legal and financial problems created by the high cost of long-term care. It includes elder law services such as asset protection planning (Medi-Cal Asset Protection Trusts), powers of attorney, advance directives, Medi-Cal qualification and strategies to pay for long-term care.

Enhance Quality of Life

A Life Care Plan addresses the caregiving challenges that most families bear in silence. It includes care assessments and referrals, assistance locating and coordinating in-home help and services, crisis intervention, family education and decision-making support, and advocacy services to protect the elder's right to safe and effective care in every long-term care setting.

How It Works

Elder Law LifeCare Plan benefitsA Life Care Plan benefits families before, during and after the transition to a long-term care facility. While the Elder is Living at Home with Family, our Elder Care Coordinator locates the right care and community services, offers family education, coordinates care and serves as an advocate for high-quality care.

As the Elder's Condition Progresses, our Elder Law Attorney develops a plan of action to handle the legal, financial, health care, housing and long-term care needs in the future. If and when nursing home care is needed, you already have a plan in place to qualify for Medi-Cal and Veterans Benefits, as well as a plan to pay for long-term care.

After the Elder Moves to a Long-Term Care Facility, our Elder Care Coordinator visits regularly to monitor quality of care and serve as the family's advocate. If problems occur, our attorney gets involved to resolve them as quickly as possible.

Benefits for All -- A Life Care Plan lightens the load for the whole family.

Did you know?  Traditional elder law firms focus on saving the elder's money for the next generation. As a Life Care Planning Law Firm, our goal is to use the elder's money to maximize his or her quality of life and independence.

  • Elders get the right care sooner which means aging with maximum possible dignity and independence and, in some cases, delaying the transition to nursing home care.
  • The spouse and dependents can relax because they know that provisions have been made for their financial future.
  • Caregivers get relief from the burdens of care coordination.
  • Family members are empowered with education, support and guidance with every legal, health care and long-term care decision as the elder's condition progresses.
  • Families appreciate having a law firm on their side if there are problems with public benefit agencies, care providers or estranged family members.
