Life Care Planning Attorneys in Berks County, PA

What Is Life Care Planning?

The Long-Term Care System is a complicated ecosystem of care providers, care facilities, Medicare, Medicaid, Long term care insurance, Doctor’s appointments, nutrition, social interaction, mental health, and legal issues. How does someone navigate this complex system when they are dealing with the diminished physical and mental capacity of a loved one? Who can they look to as an advocate that can help with such a broad spectrum of issues? People rarely call a law firm because things are going well. Unless you won the lottery, you call a law firm because you have a problem. That’s the situation with the majority of people who call a Life Care Planning Law Firm. Something just happened. Mom has Alzheimer’s disease and is wandering. Dad had a stroke and can’t communicate. No one knows what to do or where to turn.

Life Care Planning is a holistic, elder-centered approach to the practice of law that helps families respond to every challenge caused by chronic illness or disability of an elderly loved one. The goal of Life Care Planning is to promote and maintain the good health, safety, well-being, and quality of life of elders and their families. Elders and their families get access to a wider variety of options for care as well as knowledgeable guidance from a team of compassionate advisors who help them make the right choices about every aspect of their loved one’s well-being.

Life Care Planning Law Firms rely on an interdisciplinary team that works to identify present and potential future care needs, locate appropriate care, and ensure high-quality care. This approach relies less on crisis-oriented transactions and more on the development of ongoing relationships with families.

At the heart of the elder-centered law practice, a Life Care Plan defines, organizes, prioritizes, and mobilizes every aspect of an elder’s care. In addition to traditional asset-focused elder law services such as estate planning, asset preservation, and public benefits qualification, a Life Care Plan typically includes provisions for care coordination, family education, health care, and financial decision-making, care advocacy, crisis intervention, support, and other services.

Life Care Plan Is Designed to Achieve Three Primary Objectives:

  1. Make sure the elder gets appropriate care, whether at home or in a residential facility, to maintain the quality of life that he or she desires.
  2. Locate public and private sources to help pay for long-term care while resolving issues created by the high cost of care.
  3. Offer peace of mind that results when the right choices are made to ensure loved ones are safe and getting the right care while preserving family resources.

Life Care Planning Law Firms use a model called the Elder Care Continuum to help families understand the natural progression of aging and its impact on a loved one’s health, mobility, housing, and financial resources. Your initial meeting with a Life Care Planning Law Firm may focus on your loved one’s place on each line of the Elder Care Continuum. Gaps in care can then be identified and solutions discussed for closing those gaps. When your customized Life Care Plan is developed, it defines, organizes, prioritizes, and mobilizes every aspect of your loved one’s care, to allow him or her to maintain the quality of life that he or she desires. Curran Estate & Elder Law is a Life Care Planning Law Firm.

5 Stars is not enough! If I could, I would give Curran Estate & Elder Law a 10-star review … and here is why: • They listen to you and your situation. The first question Sean asked me was, “How about we begin with you telling us about your family and the need for our services?” I had come to them as a caregiver for a spouse with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. Both of us were in need of Medical and Financial Powers of Attorney, Last Will & Testaments, and Living Wills. • They really do care about you and your family. The February day we were to meet with Sean to have the legal documents signed, a snowstorm began. Rather than have my homebound spouse go out in the weather, Sean, Lois, and Susan came to our home. The Curran Estate & Elder Law team takes a genuine interest in you. As we were going through the process of selecting persons to be our Powers-of-Attorney, the Curran Team wanted to know about each person we chose. • They know what they are doing. Sean and the Life Care Team reviewed our particular situation and made recommendations based upon our needs. They do not have a “one size fits all” approach to their work. • They communicate very well and explain things thoroughly. Each staff member is very good at explaining what each legal document means. • They completed the necessary work in a timely manner. In a surprisingly brief amount of time, we were notified that all the legal documents were complete and could be reviewed at our convenience. The Life Care Plan offers the expert services of the law firm plus a compassionate Elder Care Coordinator. I have leaned on the Elder Care Coordinator for helpful guidance and suggestions. I have received an immense amount of help from the Elder Care Coordinator when placing my loved one in various skilled nursing and memory care facilities. I am relieved in knowing I have the Elder Care Coordinator as a trustworthy guide through these days. For the last 18 months, by utilizing the services of Sean Curran and the Life Care Program Team, I have found relief and peace of mind in knowing that my loved one will be taken care of for the balance of her life. With gratitude, Rev. Paul L. Jones

Sean deserves 10 stars ! But I can only give him 5 stars! He is caring & honest.. I am from out of state, and I needed help with elder care law concerning a family member.
