“The Tough Questions”Concerning Elder Care Issues
Ellicott City, MD — Larry A. Blosser, Esquire announces that his life-care planning firm, LifeCare Advisors, has added an additional free seminar on Wednesday, June 25, to help seniors and their adult-children caregivers explore the “tough questions” related to pre-crisis planning””questions which each senior and his/her family should address to maximize the senior’s quality of life in advance of a life-changing event. In addition, the seminar previously scheduled for Saturday, June 21 has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 28.
During each seminar, Mr. Blosser will present the basics of “life care planning,” a new area of elder law. “This is a relatively new, but growing, off-shoot of elder law. Instead of focusing on death planning, we prefer to help clients optimize the quality of their life and promote independence””putting them in control of their future,” says Mr. Blosser. He adds, “Life care planning is a holistic, interdisciplinary process that helps clients think through the tough questions before a crisis or life-changing event. The elder law attorney, nurse/care coordinator and other professionals (as appropriate) work as a team to advise the client and family on how best respond to the many legal, financial, physical and psychological challenges of aging.”
“Thinking Through The Tough Questions Before A Life-Changing Event “ will now be offered twice more in June: on Wednesday, June 25 at 7pm and on Saturday, June 28 at 10 am. The seminars will also be offered twice in July– Wednesday, July 16 at 7pm and Saturday, July 26 at 10am. All seminars will be held at 3565 Ellicott Mills Drive and refreshments will be served.
Seniors who want to control how they age by anticipating and answering some tough questions should attend, as well as adult children who are (or anticipate being) involved in caring for an aging parent or relative.
While the seminars are free, seating is limited. Please RSVP at least 24 hours in advance of any session.
The life care planning process starts with an in-depth interview with the senior client, followed by a home visit and assessment by the nurse. Then, LifeCare Advisors prepares a plan for the client, matching his or her wishes with available resources and recommendations identified by the firm’s professionals. The third component of the life-care planning process is implementation and advocacy, with the firm remaining in contact with the client and family over the years to ensure the plan is implemented or amended as circumstances warrant.
