Nearly 70% of all senior citizens will require long term care at some point, but few have a plan put in place ahead of time. Without a secure care plan, an older adult can suffer a sudden injury or receive a diagnosis that calls for long term care and have their life upturned by this change. Long term care planning in Palm Beach County can help people avoid the confusion of this sudden life change. When you have a plan for long-term care, you can rest easy knowing that you will receive the care you choose. You can also feel confident that your finances will be ready to handle the demands of this care.

What Long Term Care Planning Does For You
Long term care planning might be required for a number of reasons, including illness, disability, injury, or infirmity. This care may be needed for different periods, from a few weeks to several years. To create a long term care plan, you must consider:
- How you wish to receive care
- The type of care you need or desire
- Who will provide that care
- How you will finance this treatment
Your Millman Law elder care coordinator will work with elder care experts at The Millman Law Group to help you navigate the often complex process of long term care planning in Palm Beach County.
When To Create Your Long Term Care Plan in Palm Beach County
When people do not have a care plan in place, it is often because they don’t think they need one. However, life-changing illnesses can arrive quickly and leave you with no time to carefully prepare for what you need. If you put a plan in place before any injury or diagnosis occurs, you can more easily face these challenges.
There are a few signs that indicate you should start long-term care planning as soon as possible. These include:
- A terminal diagnosis
- A person is showing a loss of energy or declining mobility
- The occurrence of a life-altering accident
- A parent shows signs of early dementia or Alzheimer’s
- A health scare or hospital visit has made it clear that you are not prepared for long-term care
If any of these situations apply to you, you can start creating your care plan with The Millman Law Group.
