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.”

  • THE IMPACT OF FUNDRAISERS ON BENEFICIARIES WITH DISABILITIES
    by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA   Crisis and Kindness In times of crisis, people often show just how caring humanity can be. Major humanitarian relief efforts respond to large-scale natural and unnatural disasters. Strangers donate time and money to individuals injured in tragic accidents. Often, the first instinct upon learning that someone is hurt is to give money. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to the donor, this kind and selfless act can have devastating ramifications for the injured individual and his or her family. If the injured individual or a family member is receiving means-tested government benefits, such as SSI or Medicaid, [...]
  • MODIFYING AN IRREVOCABLE TRUST
    by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA Introduction Frequently, clients have established irrevocable trusts that they would like to modify or terminate. Historically, in New Jersey this has meant that a court order was required. This was a somewhat time-consuming and expensive process for the clients and the adoption by New Jersey of the Uniform Trust Code has greatly simplified the process. There are two ways an irrevocable trust can be modified. One through a court order, and the other through consent of the parties using a Non-Judicial Settlement Agreement (NJSA). Court Approval Where court approval is obtained, the process is [...]
