Close to 70% of all senior citizens will require long-term care at some point in their lives, but very few have a care plan in place. Without a care plan, an older adult can suffer an injury or receive a diagnosis that calls for long-term care and have their life upturned by the change. Long term care planning in Boynton Beach can help people avoid the shock and confusion of this sudden life transition. When a plan for long-term care is in place, seniors can rest easy knowing that they will receive care from the institution or caregiver of their choice. They will also know that their finances will be prepared to handle these changes in care.
The elder care coordinators and attorneys of The Millman Law Group can help you navigate this long term care planning process. Aaron Millman, Esq., CPA, founded The Millman Law Group to provide seniors of Florida with a range of essential estate planning services. We understand that every individual’s needs are different, and our skilled team is ready to help you make the best decisions for your care.
How Long Term Care Planning Helps You
Long term care planning might be required for many reasons, including disability, illness, injury, or infirmity. This care may be required for different periods, from just a few weeks to many years. To create a long term care plan, you must consider:
- How you wish to receive care
- The type of long term care you desire or need
- Who will provide that care
- How you will finance care costs
The elder care coordinator will work with elder care experts at The Millman Law Group to help you navigate the sometimes complex process of long term care planning in Boynton Beach.
When It’s Time to Create Your Care Plan
Many people don’t have a care plan because they do not think they need one. However, life-changing illnesses often come suddenly and leave you with no time to carefully prepare for the care you need. If you plan well before any injury or diagnosis occurs, you can easily face these sudden changes.
However, a few signs indicate you should start long-term care planning as soon as possible. These signs include:
- A terminal diagnosis
- The occurrence of a life-altering accident
- A parent shows early signs of probable dementia or Alzheimer’s
- A person is showing a loss of energy or declining mobility
- A health scare or hospital visit has made it clear that you are not prepared for long term care
If you are experiencing any of these situations, now is the time to start creating your long term care plan.
