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.”
