Life Care Planning

Life Care Planning

The Life Care Planning (LCP) places special emphasis on issues surrounding the elderly, those with long-term illnesses and incapacity. The LCP connects your concerns about long-term care with our knowledge and expertise.

Our firm's focus is to maximize quality of life and independence while preserving assets from the high cost of care. We provide assistance with the legal, financial and care-related challenges elders face.

Our on-staff Elder Care Coordinator offers support to families whose elderly loved ones are at home, in assisted living or skilled nursing facilities. The coordinate needed care, community services, and serve as the elder's advocate. This lightens the load for family caregivers, improves the elder's quality of life, and can even postpone the need for nursing home care.

The LCP itself is actually a relationship and a planning process with us. Your LCP can provide the "road map" that allows you to follow through to achieve your quality of life, care, and long-term care goals.
