We can get you the plan, and the road map—and our team is here to give you courage when the journey gets difficult. Here is how we will help you navigate your long-term care journey:
A 5-Part Financial Plan
This personalized plan will include calculations for how long your money will last with different levels of care, strategies you can implement to protect your assets from the nursing home or otherwise maximize the use of your assets, and a 30-page detailed appendix with answers to frequently asked questions, so you can make informed decisions about your future.
This includes the legal documents you need to prepare for old age and long-term care, including: a Durable Power of Attorney, Advanced Directive for Healthcare (with HIPAA authorization) and the ability to add a Will or Trust to your plan.
Advice on questions to ask the doctor, recommendations on doctors who can be of help. With your permission, we can talk to treating physicians for you.
An Entire Support Team
This includes a certified Dementia Coach, who will meet with you via Zoom to teach you how to work with your loved one, and who is available to answer your questions. You’ll get unlimited phone calls and office meetings with our team to answer your questions, keep your plan up to date, and provide advice to prevent costly mistakes.
Our team will serve as a liaison between you and the care facilities to make sure you get your questions answered and assure a good working relationship.
Support with issues like taking away car keys, moving from home to a care facility, help with a new caregiver, and more.
Dementia care planning for peace of mind
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and is defined as a progressive brain disorder that gradually destroys memory and the ability to learn, reason, make judgments, communicate, and carry out daily activities. As the disease progresses, those diagnosed with the disease may experience changes in behavior and personality. These changes can be exhibited as paranoia, anxiety, agitation, hallucinations, or delusions. We can help you plan for the cost of memory care in the following ways:
Plan ahead for long-term care expenses
Estimate the cost of care and provide asset protection from the cost of nursing home or in-home care
Prepare legal documents
Explore available community resources
Provide care planning and case management to help caregivers alleviate stress and effectively manage the varying stages of the disease
Navigating the unknown can be scary.
