While nearly 70% of all seniors will require long term care at some point in their lives, very few have a care plan in place. As a result, when an older adult suffers an injury or receives a diagnosis that calls for long-term care, the sudden life change can be disruptive. Long term care planning in Delray Beach can help people avoid the shock of this sudden life transition. When a long term care plan is in place, seniors can rest knowing that care will be provided by the caregiver or institution of their choice. They can also know that their finances will be prepared for those changes.
The attorneys and elder care coordinators of The Millman Law Group can help you navigate the long term care planning process. Aaron D. Millman, Esq., CPA, founded The Millman Law Group to provide senior residents of Florida with a range of necessary professional services. We understand that every individual’s needs are unique, and our skilled team is ready to help you make the best decisions for your interests.
How Long Term Care Planning Can Help
Long term care planning may be required for many reasons, including disability, injury, illness, or infirmity. This care may need to last for various periods, from a few weeks to many years. To create a long term care plan, you must decide:
- How you wish to receive care
- The type of long term care you want to receive
- Who will provide that care
- How you will finance the costs for care
Together with the elder care coordinator, the elder care experts at The Millman Law Group will help you navigate the sometimes complex process of long term care planning in Delray Beach.
When It’s Time to Create a Care Plan
Many people do not have a care plan because they do not think they need one. However, life-altering illnesses often come suddenly and leave you with no time to adequately prepare for the care you need. If you plan well before any injury occurs, you can easily face any sudden changes.
However, a few signs indicate you should start your long-term care planning sooner rather than later. These signs include:
- A terminal diagnosis
- A parent shows early signs of possible dementia or Alzheimer’s
- A life-altering accident has occurred
- A person is displaying 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 create a long term care plan.
