Be Prepared for the Future!
An ElderCare plan looks at the environment and care that one may require as they age. A typical plan will look at various scenarios and strategies based on the individuals' goals for aging.
A typical plan will look at the following areas:
Aging at home
Long Term Care Facilities
During a meeting with a Senior Living Advisor, you will discuss your goals, preferences and current/future needs. Your current living situation will be reviewed and your advisor will provide guidance, referrals, recommendations, and strategies that could be taken should the need arise.
For individuals who would prefer to age at home, the Senior Living Advisor will consider all things to enable you to age at home successfully, and then prepare a recommended plan and budget. This may include:
Home Accessibility (Fall risk)
Social Engagement (companionship)
Nutrition (meal programs)
Home Maintenance etc.
What the plan will show, is all the areas to consider for aging well at home, and then provide both public (funded) and private (fee for service) programs available in the community, plus strategies on how to access them. It will include all the contact information and also a budget and estimated costs.
Again, this may not be needed now, but the Advanced ElderCare plan is to ensure that when you do require these services, you are ready, prepared and able to access them.

What else is an Advanced ElderCare Plan good for?
The Advanced ElderCare Plan is an excellent tool to keep you in the driver's seat as you age. It will also help with financial planning and saving, by way of creating strategies for accessing funded services, and also creating a budget for future needs.
An Advanced ElderCare Plan is also a great impartial and independent perspective, which can be used for family resolutions, research, and POA/estate conflicts.
