New Jersey Elder Law Attorneys Create Life Care Planning Videos to Help People be Proactive

Moorestown, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) March 2, 2012 - Life care planning poses unique challenges for individuals and their loved ones as they age. Begley Law Group, a leading New Jersey elder law firm, recently launched a set of online videos to help people better understand life care planning. The videos at http://www.begleylawyer.com/life-care-planning-videos/ are able to be watched 24 hours a day and help viewers see why it is essential to work with a life care planning coordinator.

“We all know someone who has experienced the guilty feeling of 'what if I had done more' to help a family member,” said New Jersey elder law attorney Dana E. Bookbinder, who leads the Begley Law Group Life Care Planning team. “You can help yourself and your loved ones achieve a higher quality of life if you are proactive about planning.”

Begley Law Group's Life Care Plan service helps a person objectively assess legal, financial, and health matters to create a short and long-term plan. This facilitates the decision-making that a person needs to make in regards to their estate plan, living will, power of attorney, and daily needs such as shopping, cooking, and adaptive equipment to function better. A Begley care coordinator eases a family's stress by managing the array of supports, public benefits, insurance benefits, and a transition from a home care setting to a nursing home, for example.

“A life care plan helps each person map out their priorities,” said Bookbinder. “You can watch these videos and learn how you can help a loved one in another state, how to help keep a parent independent as they age, and the signs that show you need a life care plan. A life care plan is all about averting disaster and planning for the big decisions when you have time to think through them clearly.”

With the cost of long-term care skyrocketing, having an objective conversation with an experienced elder law attorney can provide peace of mind that all the options for financial security and well-being have been discussed and documented. “Sometimes your loved one feels isolated or needs a caregiver, and sometimes different family members can't agree on what type of care is best,” said Bookbinder. “We are here to objectively address the key questions and create a tailored life care plan that is unique to your wants and needs.”

  • UNDERSTANDING PARENTING IN THE CONTEXT OF SPECIAL NEEDS PLANNING
    by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA Representing clients in connection with planning for children with disabilities involves a lot more than simply preparing documents. Many lawyers who enter the field of Special Needs Planning have family members who suffer from disabilities and have had first-hand experience with the problem. Good legal advice begins with understanding the problem. For most parents, the concern is what will happen to the child after the parent(s) are gone. While the parents are alive, they will do whatever it takes to achieve the best life possible for their child with disabilities. After they are gone, [...]
  • Annuities – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
    Thomas A. Lane, Jr., ChFC®, CFP® of the Lane Hipple Wealth Management Group “I HATE annuities, and you should too” is a popular marketing campaign utilized by a national investment advisory firm to create uncertainty and fear among annuity owners with the hope they will seek out their firm who will then “rescue” them from these “horrific” products. Is there any basis or truth to such a comment? I can only assume that the owner of that firm probably does hate annuities. That said, he is making a very broad statement inferring that ALL annuities are bad, which, of course, [...]
