Life Resource Planning
There are any number of things that can cause us to need long-term care. Long-term care is a very broad term. It includes a wide array of services and support for any medical, personal, or social needs. Causes for long-term care can range from the severe mental or physical aspects—like a stroke or depression—to simple frailty. In fact, in every group of five, three people will require long-term care. And while a majority of those in need (and their families) often fail to adequately prepare for that need, and that can (and does) lead to severe great physical and emotional stress, and burnout for caregivers. This, in turn, can even lead to disagreements and disputes among family members that can last a lifetime.
It all can be avoided, however, just by planning things out properly, and we can help.
At Scott Counsel, we will sit down with you to discuss your specific needs and put them in what we call a Life Care Plan. This will outline what those needs are, and what resources you might need in order to meet them. Taking the time to do these things will help you or your family members to better be prepared for the final years of life by optimizing your resources to, again, meet your or your loved one’s specific needs.
As with estate planning—and every other part of elder care, there is a lot to unpack here. When it comes to Medicaid, there is no doubt that you will likely have a lot of questions. That’s okay, because we have a lot of answers here.
We know that, as a person gets older, he or she has a great many concerns about a great many things—not the least of which are the following:
- Retaining independence
- Having an adequate amount of money, and
- Staying in good health
Let’s take a look at some of the things our care plans will cover. A great Life Care Plan includes taking the following things into account:
When you create a Life Care Plan with us, we will look into each of these and more as we figure out together the best course of action for you and your family. You’ll see it time and time again around the site and in the testimonies of others we have helped, but people matter here at Scott Counsel. We want to show you that from the first moment you walk into our office, and in how your individual case is handled with the utmost care, respect, and professionalism from everyone involved in it.
Again, we at Scott Counsel want to do our very best for you because, not only is it what you expect, but it’s what you and your family deserve—our very best. That begins with crafting a Care plan tailored to meeting your needs and then implementing that plan and meeting them. It may seem overwhelming at first, but it doesn’t have to be; we will help guide you along each and every step of the way. Whatever goals you may have when it comes to the care of your loved ones, a solid care plan will lay the groundwork for the long road ahead, and then we will work on reaching those goals together
