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.”

  • 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: [...]
