New Jersey Elder Lawyers Offer New Life Care Planning Service

Moorestown, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) February 13, 2012 - Accomplished New Jersey elder law firm Begley Law Group is now offering a unique, new Life Care Plan service to help individuals and families. The service will tailor a personalized plan to help people proactively address critical life care decisions. A comprehensive life care plan covers an individual's health care wishes, finances, long term care plans, and estate planning. The Begley Life Care Plan service can tailor a standalone plan or one that works in tandem with other asset protection plans and Veteran's benefits planning, for example.

“A life care plan is based on the principle that most people want personal independence and should address every facet of their well-being as they age,” said New Jersey Certified Elder Law Attorney Dana E. Bookbinder, who also leads the Life Care Planning team at Begley Law Group. “Oftentimes family members live far away and don't know how to navigate the complexities of elder issues. We want to help busy adult children and seniors anticipate important decisions before it is too late.”

Begley Law Group's life care experts and legal team work one-on-one with an individual so that any disability, illness, government benefit, and aging concerns are reviewed. The team is also mindful of updating and reviewing an individual's Life Care Plan as health care situations arise.

“Begley Law Group has more than 75 years of helping the elderly and disabled,” said Bookbinder. “Our extensive experience in elder law, special needs trusts, and asset protection fit very well with the new Life Care Plan service. We want individuals and their loved ones to know that they do not have to face these complex decisions on their own.”

  • Financing Long-Term Care in New Jersey 2017
    Statistics show that approximately 70% of the population age 65 or over will require some form of long-term care. Some will be there for relatively short periods of time. These are usually stroke or accident victims or surgery patients who are doing rehabilitation. A significant percentage will remain in a nursing home for an extended period of time. These are usually Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or other Dementia patients. A statistic widely quoted is that the average stay in a nursing home is 2.9 years. This statistic is somewhat misleading, because the persons receiving rehabilitation are often discharged in one month or [...]
  • FUNDING SPECIAL NEEDS TRUSTS
    by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA Overview Estate planning attorneys are regularly called upon to draft trusts for their clients’ children with disabilities. Typically, these children are determined to be disabled by the Social Security Administration and are receiving SSI, Medicaid, or other means-tested public benefits. The goal of the parent in establishing the trust is to maintain public benefits for the child with disabilities while providing an inheritance to enrich the child’s life. The inheritance is to supplement, not supplant, public benefits. There is an old adage that there are two ways to screw up a Special Needs Trust: [...]
