Long-Term Care Planning

Long-term care (LTC) is a range of services and supports you may need to meet your health or personal needs over a long period of time. LTC planning involves deciding on a plan for what you want when you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself and at the end of your life. Starting the process of LTC planning before you need it allows you to learn about the services available for LTC given your financial circumstances, detail your end-of-life wishes, complete the necessary legal documents, and appoint decision-makers. Between our attorneys and client care coordinator, we assist with all aspects of an LTC plan so its there when you need it.

You should consider these questions as you plan:

  • What are your values and beliefs? When developing an advance care plan, consider your concerns, values, spiritual beliefs, or your ideas about what makes life worth living.
  • What do you want for yourself? Most people think about the way they wish to face death or disability but may be uncomfortable discussing these topics. Sometimes sharing your own ideas, if you are helping someone, or reviewing the situations of other family members or friends who have been in similar situations, can help.
  • Who do you want as your decision maker? Decide who should make decisions for you if you cannot. Choose someone who will understand and be able to carry out your wishes even if they include stopping life-sustaining treatment.
