Most of us do well to plan a week or maybe a few months down the road. However, when it comes to one’s health, that may not be enough. Why? Simply put, the cost of long-term care has skyrocketed and those who fail to plan for such care well in advance may be left without the care that they need or want. Also, a lack of planning may leave loved ones responsible for a bill that they may be incapable of handling.
Proper care planning is possible, though. Oftentimes New Yorkers turn to experienced attorneys to learn more about their options and for the creation of pertinent legal documents. Attorneys can help these individuals assess whether long-term care insurance is right for them, as well as give them a clearer sense of the assistance Medicare can provide and its limitations as well. Medical powers of attorney can also be discussed to ensure that an individual’s health wishes are followed in the event that he or she cannot make important decisions for himself or herself.
The legal team at Enea, Scanlan & Sirgnano diligently work to provide customized care planning to our clients. We want our clients to envision the future of their healthcare, then we can help them create a legal strategy that seeks to make that vision a reality. We provide a holistic and honest approach, too, so that our clients can rest easy knowing that they have a solid plan in place for their future.
We recognize that discussing the decline of one’s health is not an easy thing to do. However, instead of focusing on the aspects of the situation that may be depressing, we urge our clients to see it as a way to protect themselves, their estates and their loved ones. We find that this often makes the process easier. New Yorkers who are looking to learn more about care planning and its benefits should know that firms like ours stand ready to assist.
