Nature’s Early Warning System
The Elder Care Journey Starts Here
Pay close attention to trigger events.
They're a sign to start planning for the future.
Chronic Conditions with No Cure
A Medical Emergency
Fire in the Home
Mistake involving Medication
Your Loved One is...
Unable to Provide Self-Care due to Functional Limitations
The Primary Caregiver...
Suffers from Burnout
I wish we’d started sooner.
We hear this from clients
all the time.
People have all kinds of reasons for putting off planning for an elderly loved one’s long-term care. There may be concerns about spending money. There may be resistance from the elder who mistakenly believes that planning means giving up control. Maybe family members can’t see the toll on the primary caregiver’s physical health.
But here's the reality...
The longer you wait, the more time you’ll waste reacting to one crisis after another.
The longer you wait, the harder it is on the family, especially the primary caregiver.
The longer you wait, the better the chance that the elder will end up in a nursing home, a place that almost no one wants to be.
The longer you wait, the fewer options you’ll have—and the most expensive those options will be.
Everything is harder—and more expensive—when you wait until the last minute. You and your loved one will have more of what you don’t want, and less of what you do.
Early Planning Makes All the Difference
When you start the planning process immediately after the trigger event, there’s more of what you do want and less of what you don’t. The Life Care Planning process is especially powerful at bringing about the results that everyone wants.
