Most attorneys who practice elder law focus only on the financial aspects of growing older, that is, finding ways for their clients to pay for long-term care. At Mannor Law Group, this is but one aspect of our approach to elder law. We provide a wealth of other services to our clients through a process known as life care planning.
The most important goal of life care planning is to enhance your quality of life or that of your loved one. This begins by ensuring the best possible quality of care, whether at home, an assisted living facility, or a nursing home. We will help you determine and locate the type of care best suited to your unique situation, and explore all the public assistance options available to help pay for care.
Life care planning utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to create a holistic plan to deal with legal, financial, medical and emotional issues involved in growing older. For example, our Elder Care Coordinator and our on-staff Registered Nurse will work closely with you or your loved one’s care providers to make sure that appropriate care is being provided, that you understand the diagnosis, and that you or your loved one doesn’t “fall through the cracks” upon discharge from a hospital or care facility.
Our Elder Care Coordinator also works hand-in-hand with our attorneys to ensure that your legal needs are addressed, such as appointing a power of attorney so that bills continue to get paid and naming a person you trust to make medical decisions in the event of incapacity.
We are committed to making sure that the life care plan we create for you is sustainable. This means that necessary care is affordable not only for the next six months, but also for years down the road. Our care coordinator works to align Medicare, health insurance, Veteran benefits, Medicaid and community resources to preserve assets and provide better care. The result? You or your loved one is able to take advantage of the best care options available, not just the options your dwindling financial resources can provide. This not only serves to prevent hospital readmissions but also ensures a much higher quality of life by reducing the stress of constantly worrying about the future.
