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.
