Life Care Planning for the Elderly Client:
Fundamentals and Practice
This 1½ day program gives attorneys the knowledge, tools and support needed to launch a Life Care Planning elder law practice. Life Care Planning is an innovative and holistic approach to elder law that helps families respond to the challenges created by long-term illness or disability before, during and after the elder's transition to long-term care. While traditional elder law focuses on saving the elder’s money to pass on to the next generation, Life Care Planning focuses on using the elder’s money for the elder’s benefit. The goal is to maximize quality of life and independence while preserving family wealth to the greatest extent possible. In a Life Care Planning law firm, an inter-disciplinary team of elder law attorneys, care coordinators and others work together to develop an estate plan, protect assets, qualify for public benefits, coordinate care, provide education and decision-making support, advocate for high-quality care and intervene if there are problems with care providers.
The program is for attorneys only. The registration fee of $899 includes lunch on day 1 and program materials, including the Life Care Plan System Documents in electronic format. Seating is limited to the first 15 registrants.
