As we talk about Life Care Planning, we’re talking about the Elder Care Continuum, which is the period where the patient progresses towards the end of their lives. The goal for us all is aging in place. That means the elder who lives in his own house, safely and happily with no support needed until they pass away. Some people are lucky enough to depart life in this way, but many are not. Perhaps, they may have Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease, or they may have suffered an invalid stroke, or they may have been weak, or they may have found themselves moving down the elder care continum. They find that they need assistance with the daily life activities. That means preparing for their long-term care needs.Check Law Offices of Bryana Cross Bean
What does planning lifecare mean? I define Life Care Planning as our exploration of the elder’s position in the Elder Care Continuum and then finding out what we need to do to locate, connect, and pay for the individual’s good care, both now and in future. That’s not as easy as it sounds, but it’s the core of what we do for an older focused practice of law. They help older people control their chronic diseases, to put it another way. Seniors need to be cautious when and where they need it, and know how to pay for it. As an elderly based law practice, we will include a clause in our customer engagement agreements that ensures we will not intentionally take a position that hurts an elder and it is our aim to improve the quality of life for those elderly people we represent. You expressly permit us to behave in your best interests at all times by entering into this Agreement with us.
