      Life Care Planning is a revolutionary new way to respond to the challenges created by long life, long-term illness or disability. A Life Care Plan spells out how the elder law attorney and elder law professionals at Gerhardt Law Office will help you get the best possible care for your loved one in the least restrictive environment—while preserving your loved one’s wealth to the greatest extent possible. Bundling asset protection, public benefits qualification, care coordination, nursing home advocacy and crisis intervention services into a convenient package, a Life Care Plan is the ultimate protection for elders and those who love them.

​        A Life Care Plan helps you resolve the legal and financial problems created by the high cost of long-term care. It includes elder law services such as wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advance directives, Medicaid qualification, benefits coordination, asset protection planning and strategies to pay for long-term care.


A Life Care Plan addresses the caregiving challenges that most families bear in silence. It includes care assessments and referrals, assistance locating and coordinating in-home help and services, crisis intervention, family education and decision-making support, and advocacy services to protect the elder’s right to safe and effective care in every long-term care setting.


A Life Care Plan benefits families before, during and after the transition to a long-term care facility. While the Elder is living at home or with family, our Elder Care Coordinator locates the right care and community services, offers family education, coordinates care and serves as an advocate for high-quality care.

We invite you to view this short video which provides some basic information about Life Care Planning as well as Proactive Elder Law.

Has your loved one been diagnosed with a chronic or progressive terminal illness?


Are you concerned about the safety and welfare of your loved one being alone? 


Has your loved one had multiple hospital stays within the last six months? 


Do you want help but don't know where to start?

As the Elder’s condition progresses, our elder law attorney develops a plan of action to handle the legal, financial, health care, housing and future long-term care needs. If and when nursing is needed, you already have a plan in place to qualify for public benefits such as Medicaid and Veterans Benefits, as well as a plan to pay for long-term care.

After the Elder moves to a long-term care facility, our Elder Care Coordinator visits regularly to monitor quality of care and serve as the family’s advocate. If problems occur, our attorney gets involved to resolve them as quickly as possible.
