Close to 70% of all senior citizens will need long-term care at some point, but few have a plan in place for when they need that care. Without a definite care plan, an older adult can suffer a sudden injury or receive a diagnosis that requires long-term care and have their life upended. Long term care planning in Broward County can help people avoid the confusion of these sudden life changes. When you create a plan for long-term care, you can rest easy knowing that you will receive the care you need when you need it. You can also know for sure that your finances will be ready to pay for this care.
The elder care attorneys of The Millman Law Group can help you navigate your long-term care options and planning process. Aaron Millman, Esq., CPA, established The Millman Law Group to provide Florida residents with the essential planning services they need. We know that every person’s needs are unique, so our skilled team is ready to address your individual concerns.
What Long Term Care Planning Can Do For You
Long term care planning is necessary for several reasons, including illness, injury, infirmity, and disability. This care may be needed for different lengths of time, from a few weeks to years. To create your care plan, you must consider:
- How you prefer to receive care
- The type of care you need or want
- Who will provide the care
- How you will finance any treatment
You will partner with an elder care coordinator and elder care lawyer at The Millman Law Group to navigate the complex process of long term care planning in Broward County.
When You Should Create Your Long Term Care Plan
Most people don’t have a care plan in place because they don’t think they need one. However, life-changing illnesses can arrive instantly and leave you with no time to carefully find the care you need. If you put a plan into place before an injury or diagnosis arrives, you can more easily face these challenges.
There are a few signs that indicate it’s time to start long-term care planning as soon as possible. These signs include:
- A terminal diagnosis
- A life-altering accident
- A loss of energy or declining mobility
- A parent shows signs of probable early dementia or Alzheimer’s
- A health scare or hospital visit has shown you that you are not prepared
If any of these situations apply, you can contact The Millman Law Group today to start creating a plan.
