A Life Care Plan defines, organizes, prioritizes and mobilizes every aspect of an elder’s care. Besides traditional asset-focused elder law services that help elders qualify for public benefits while preserving family wealth to the greatest extent possible, a Life Care Plan includes provisions for care coordination and other forms of family support.
Focusing on the needs of families and individuals as they age is an important aspect of estate and long-term care planning. With advances in age come advances in health problems. Along with health challenges, we face special legal challenges that need addressing. The body of law addressing these challenges is commonly known as “Elder Law.”
After serving in our country’s armed forces, do you know of all the benefits to which you or your family members are entitled?
