Life Care Planning

Life care planning is an inclusive planning approach that addresses the health care, legal and financial issues of aging and disability. It is an important step for anyone who is in the natural transitioning process that accompanies the elder years.

At the estate planning and elder law firm of Wright Abshire, Attorneys, we have advanced experience in all aspects of life care planning, from gift and asset transfers to estate planning to eligibility for Medicaid benefits. We advise and counsel individuals and families during this process, helping them to make well-informed choices regarding their futures.

If you are ready to start taking steps toward planning for the care of your medical, legal and financial affairs, we invite you to contact our firm to schedule a consultation.

Advanced and Comprehensive Life Plans

Too often, the elderly and their families consider only pieces of their necessary life care plan. For example, they may know they need to create a will or trust, but fail to consider who will make decisions should they become incapacitated.

Our lawyers are available to help you make decisions about all aspects of your future care. We assist in consulting, drafting and implementing an advanced life care plan that completely and thoroughly addresses your or a loved one's needs.

Our services include:

  • Assisting with asset restructuring
  • Researching, conducting conferences and making the necessary calls needed to implement and monitor the plan
  • Filing applications for SSI, VA Benefits and Medicaid Benefits
  • Completing annual reviews of all benefits being received
  • Identifying all sources of payment for long-term medical and physical care

Modifying Life Care Plans

Even the most advanced life care plans may need revising if there is a significant change in circumstances or laws. If you do nothing, the transitioning of care likely will not be carried out according to your wishes. By speaking with one of our lawyers right away, we can help you revise your life care plan so that it clearly and properly dictates your desires for your finances and care.
