No matter what your plan for aging includes, long-term care planning helps ensure that your wishes are observed. When you know what you want to happen for your future home, finances, and health, you should take all measures to ensure these plans are followed. After all, we never know what the future may bring, and when you need to rely on long-term care, you may not be able to plan it as effectively as you can today. The best way to ensure that you benefit from effective long-term care planning is to work with an estate planning lawyer who has experience navigating the many housing, medical, and financial decisions older Americans face. At The Millman Law Group, we can help you plan for the future you want.
One of the components of long-term care planning is considering housing situations. Do you want to have in-home care? Do you wish to move into a care facility, or has a family member agreed to take you in? Consider all possible future scenarios, including ones in which you cannot fully care for yourself.
Even if you do not currently have a condition that affects your health, the risk of developing age-related illnesses increases with time. No one can say with certainty what their health will be in several years, so it’s best to plan for everything. Planning for future medical care with your Millman Law Group lawyers is one of the best ways to ensure that your wishes are carried out. When family members and professionals are legally bound to follow your long-term care plan, they are more likely to do so.
Again, long-term care planning when you are healthy may feel unnecessary today but will pay off in the future. If you are suddenly struck with a debilitating illness, you won’t have the time or capacity to create the plan you want. Instead, it’s best to start your care plan when you have plenty of time to explore your options.
Long-term care can be expensive, so your estate planning lawyer can help you determine how you will pay for your future care. There are options for funding and support, which your experienced lawyer can help you navigate. When planning for long-term care, you can also begin estate planning. Your lawyer can help draw up wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and more. All of these actions will help you create a future in which you can trust that your health will be cared for, you will have a place to live, and your finances will be managed.
