Families in Crisis

Eldercare 911 – Families in Crisis

What is a crisis? It can sound like this:

I cared for him as long as I could. I promised my husband I’d care for him at home no matter how bad his dementia got. And now I have a terminal illness. He refused to plan ahead because he was certain he would never need long-term care.

Will the nursing home take all Dad’s money? My father’s Alzheimer’s disease has progressed to the point where he needs nursing home care. How will we pay for this and still have enough left for Mom to live?

Where will Mom live now? Mom was going to the store and she fell and broke her hip. Now she’s in the hospital and we’re told she needs round-the-clock care when she’s released. None of us kids can take her in.

Finding out that an elderly loved one can no longer live at home creates a cascade of dilemmas that can put hard-earned assets in jeopardy and tear families apart. No matter how you end up at the crisis point, Drazen Law Group, LLC can guide you out of the storm, preserving wealth and important family relationships in the process.

Benefits for the Entire Family

What benefits do our clients and their families typically experience when working with Drazen Law Group, LLC?

A greater sense of control. The long-term care journey is filled with unknowns and no one can predict how a loved one’s condition will progress. With Drazen Law Group, LLC as your guide, you’ll be ready for the future. You will understand all the options available, experience more control during the journey, be a better advocate for your own and your loved one’s well being, and to be able to respond with confidence no matter how your loved one’s condition changes.

Less time managing care. Finding, coordinating and monitoring the services required to meet a loved one’s basic care needs can be a full-time job, leaving precious little time available to attend to the details that add to quality of life. When you work with Drazen Law Group, LLC, you are intimately involved in every decision, yet you’re free from the day-to-day burdens of researching care and service options. This gives you more quality time with your loved one, plus more time to spend in your roles as parent, grandparent, child, friend, employee, and spouse.

Your loved stays in familiar surroundings longer. Calling Drazen Law Group, LLC before or shortly after a trigger event or diagnosis increases the odds that your loved one will be able to live at home longer. When care and services are in place early in your loved one’s long-term care journey, the need for long-term care outside the home can often be avoided. If the time comes when living at home is no longer an option, your elder care coordinator and our legal team work together to identify long-term care options and evaluate the financial implications of each option to help you avoid costly mistakes.

Fewer family conflicts. Open communication is vital, especially when family members live far away. When you work with Drazen Law Group, LLC, your elder care coordinator serves as a liaison for family decision making. This reduces misunderstandings and the potential for damage to relationships.

More informed decisions. A reactive approach to care can be extremely costly. Families navigating the long-term care journey on their own often find themselves scrambling from one crisis to the next—paying a premium for services arranged at the last minute. Drazen Law Group listens to your needs and designs a plan that includes your input. This gives you more options, a thorough understanding of the implications of those options, and the opportunity to preserve more of the loved one’s estate.

More wealth passed to the next generation. With long-term care costs ranging from $60,000-$80,000 per year for Assisted Living Facilities to $150,000 per year for 24-hour in-home care—and up to $160,000 per year for Nursing Facilities, it has never been more important for families to plan carefully for the funding of a loved one’s care. Since no one can predict how many years of long-term care will be needed, working with Drazen Law Group, LLC may be the single most important step you can take to avoid the multiplier effect of costly bad decisions. With so much at stake, even the most financially-secure families find that the relatively small investment in the Pathways through Longevity® Program pays for itself many times over during a loved one’s long-term care journey.
