Life Care Planning: The Intersection of Legal and Care Planning

$169.00

Traditional elder law focuses on the way property is passed from one generation to the next.  It may provide a foundation for financial and care decision-making through Powers of Attorney, but it does not meet the full range of care needs (including how to pay for long-term care) associated with aging and disability.  A newer model called Life Care Planning is based on a more comprehensive approach to the legal and financial challenges of long-term care.  Families with loved ones in care crisis situations benefit from a single point of contact that addresses a wide range of their concerns and relieves decision-making burdens.  Benefits to the legal practitioner include greater satisfaction in solving complex problems for clients, long-term relationships with families, and the creation of recurring revenue streams.
