Although nearly 70% of seniors will need long term care at some point, very few have a plan in place. As a result, when a senior person suffers an injury or receives a diagnosis requiring long-term care, the sudden life change can be upsetting. Long term care planning in Boca Raton can help people avoid the shock of this life transition. When a long term care plan is in place, seniors can rest easy knowing that care will be administered by the caregiver or institution of their choice and that their finances will be prepared for that change.
The attorneys and elder care coordinators at The Millman Law Group can help you navigate long term care planning. Aaron D. Millman, Esq., CPA, founded The Millman Law Group in 2018 to provide senior residents of Florida with a range of professional services. We understand that every person’s needs are unique, and our skilled team is ready to guide you towards the best decisions for your interests.
What Long Term Care Planning Can Do
Long term care planning can be required for many reasons, including disability, injury, illness, or infirmity of old age. This care may need to last for any period from a few weeks to many years. To create a long term care plan, individuals must decide:
- How they wish to receive care
- The type of long term care they want to receive
- Who will provide that care
- How they will finance the costs for this care
In conjunction with the elder care coordinator, the elder care experts at The Millman Law Group will help you and your family navigate the sometimes complex process of long term care planning in Boca Raton.
The Signs That It’s Time to Create a Care Plan
Many people do not have long term care plans in place because they do not think they need one. However, life-altering illnesses can often come suddenly and leave you with no time to plan for necessary care. When you plan well before any injury occurs, you can face any sudden changes with ease.
However, a few signs indicate you should start your long term care planning journey sooner rather than later. These signs include:
- A parent showing early signs of possible Alzheimer’s or dementia
- A terminal diagnosis has been issued
- A life-altering accident happened to an elder relative
- A senior relative is displaying a loss of energy or declining mobility
- A health scare or hospital visit has made you realize that you are not prepared for long term care
If you are experiencing any of these situations, it’s time to create a long term care plan.
