Life Care Planning

The nursing process forms the foundation of our life care plan development. We use the same methodology for every plan we do. Information is gathered from the review of medical records, research and health care provider recommendations and determinations to formulate your client’s individualized life care plan. This plan outlines all goods and services needed throughout the patient’s lifetime.

You receive a complete, comprehensive plan for current and future medical needs with associated costs for patients who have experienced a catastrophic injury or who have chronic health care needs.

Individualized Care Plans

The dynamic life care plans we develop serve as “road maps” or individualized plans of care for clients to follow throughout their lifetimes. They also help ensure the necessary funds are available for proper care.

Our life care plans are comprehensive and include a summary of medical records to date (Medical Chronology), a synopsis of the patient’s present status regarding all symptoms and an outline of treatments and services needed.

Not sure your case needs a Life Care  Plan, or simply have a few questions regarding the life care planning process, or how to get started, all case consultations are FREE.
