Giving Aging Loved Ones the Best Possible Care in the Most Enjoyable Environment Available
Honoring parents and aging loved ones with the best of care and a home they can enjoy for the remainder of their days is a desire that simply comes naturally. Unfortunately, many families put off planning for the potential needs of aging members until illness or disability compels them to action, often forcing them to accept less than optimal solutions and burdening them with sudden financial strains they are not prepared for. But that doesn’t have to happen to your family.

WHAT IS A LIFE CARE PLAN?
A Life Care Plan is a formalized strategy for promoting and maintaining good health, safety, well-being and quality of life for a senior and their family. It bundles together estate planning instruments, legal and advisory services, and health care advocacy assistance to achieve objectives such as:
- Determining a client’s current and potential health care and residency needs
- Identifying and securing resources for financing those needs, including Medicaid, VA Benefits, insurance and other private and public funding
- Qualifying the client for Medicaid and/or VA Benefits
- Protecting family assets against claims by Medicaid or health care providers
- Identifying appropriate residence opportunities
- Ensuring the client is able to leave an inheritance to their loved ones
Sorting through all the options available and identifying a practical course of action to ensure an elderly loved one has the best care and lifestyle possible can be confusing and frustrating. Most families aren’t aware of all the possibilities or how to go about taking advantage of those possibilities. The Life Care Planning team at Weatherby & Associates, PC eliminates all that hassle and frustration, helping families make the right decisions for their loved ones and often opening opportunities that families would not have when planning on their own.
The Life Care Planning process begins with assessments of the loved one’s health, mobility, housing needs, health care needs and financial resources. This includes an in-home assessment by our Life Care Coordinator. Our team then identifies gaps in the care being provided and potential future needs and discusses possible solutions with the client’s family. Once solutions are decided upon, the team drafts a customized plan that defines the needs and organizes and prioritizes all the necessary components. Then the plan gets put into action.
