Issues You May Need to Address in Your Estate Plan
Long Term Care Planning means providing for the sustained support and elder care for you, your spouse, or even your parents. A proper estate plan considers the quality of life, physical comfort, and independence of members of your family as they age and may be incapable of fully caring for themselves.
Long Term Care Planning Prevents Financial Surprises
A complete estate plan can include an outline for financial support that may be years away. Knowing what can lie ahead may avoid the need for hasty nursing home placement or a sub-par home health care situation.
Preparation of a long term plan may include:
- Assessment of medical, cognitive, and emotional conditions
- Identifying the particular services needed or preferred
- Budgeting for the expense of care services
- Incorporating the above into the estate plan (power of attorney, advance health care directive, and/or trusts)
- Asset protection methods

Long Term Care Planning – Bundle Care Planning With Your Estate Plan
When considering your estate plan options, it may make sense to address long term care needs. Don’t assume Medi-Care and/or Medi-Cal are perfect solutions; issues may arise that prevent you or your loved one from receiving benefits. Find out what level of help you may need and if a special needs trust will provide the added security you want for yourself or your family member.
