Long-Term Care Planning Month

You’ll also find a few great tips regarding seniors and health care coverage in our Perspectives column on page 31.

Long-Term Care Planning Month’s mission is to create awareness among senior citizens and their caretakers to understand and prepare for the costs of health care for adults.

Care plans are developed with a nursing home resident in mind and address both medical and nonmedical concerns. It’s also helpful for someone living alone or at risk of falling.

It’s never too early to plan for senior living, assess your financial future or meet with a professional adviser. An elder-care attorney can also be very helpful.

Local elder-care attorneys include Family and Elder Law of Mid-Michigan, found online at family-elder-law.com, as well as Crenshaw Peterson & Associates at crenshawpeterson.com; Loomis Law at loomislaw.com; and Foster Swift Collins and Smith PC at fosterswift.com, just to name a few. It’s important to do your research to find the fit right for you.
