Elder Care Planning

Elder Care Planning

Elder care planning is when you make plans now for the care you want in the future when you have a serious illness or can no longer make these types of decisions on your own. Elder care planning consists of learning about your illness and understanding the choices that you may have for your treatments and care. Elder care planning will also include the protection of your family wealth, assessing whether or not there is going to be a need for long term care, whether at home or at a facility equipped for these types of needs, identifying all of the potential sources of payment for long term care, and for the support with your overall health and well-being. Ultimately, elder care planning can deal with all of aspects of your health care, legal care and financial matters of needed long term care.


The benefits of elder care planning can consist of the freedom from any liabilities for any type of care-giving, the relief about having to worry about paying for long term care, the confidence that you will have knowing that you have an elder care plan in place, and security and peace of mind with knowing that your loved ones are provided for and you are protected with the right quality of care. In the long run, elder care planning gives you the reassurance that you will have the best possible quality of life now and until the end of your life.
