Life Care Planning

Experienced Cleveland Life Care Planning Lawyers

At Solomon, Steiner & Peck, Ltd., our team of life care planning attorneys work together with our Elder Care Coordinator and with Ohio families facing a wide variety of individual, family and health-related personal issues.

A new approach to the challenges created by long life

Life Care Planning is a holistic, elder-centered approach to the practice of law that helps families respond to every challenge caused by chronic illness or disability of an elderly loved one. The goal of Life Care Planning is to promote and maintain the good health, safety, well-being, and quality of life of elders and their families. Through an Elder Care Coordinator, elders and their families get access to a wide variety of options for care as well as knowledgeable guidance from a team of compassionate advisors who help them make the right choices about every aspect of their loved one's well-being.

Life Care Planning Law Firms like us rely on an inter-disciplinary team that works to identify present and potential future care needs, locate appropriate care, and ensure high-quality care.

The heart of the elder-centered law practice, a Life Care Plan defines, organizes, prioritizes, and mobilizes every aspect of an elder's care.

In addition to traditional asset-focused elder law services such as Estate planning, Asset preservation, Medicaid and Veterans benefits qualification, a Life Care Plan typically includes provisions for care coordination, family education, health care and financial decision-making, care advocacy, crisis intervention, support and other services. We provide similar valuable advice on our television show, Golden Opportunities.

Every Life Care Plan is designed to achieve three primary objectives:

  • Make sure the elder gets appropriate care, whether at home or in a residential facility, to maintain the quality of life that he or she desires.
  • Locate public and private sources to help pay for long-term care while resolving issues created by the high cost of care.
  • Offer peace of mind that results when the right choices are made to ensure loved ones are safe and getting the right care while preserving family resources.

The Elder Care Continuum

Life Care Planning Law Firms like Solomon, Steiner & Peck, Ltd., use a model called the Elder Care Continuum to help families understand the natural progression of aging and its impact on a loved one's health, mobility, housing, and financial resources. This approach relies less on crisis-oriented transactions and more on the development of on-going relationships with families.
