Planning And Managing Life-Long Care

EDLC recognizes a growing need for comprehensive services during, and for, the aging process. The "journey" into the elder years requires a myriad of services and recognition of the changing requirements for maturing individuals and their families. Estate planning and estate documents (durable power of attorney, advance medical directive, wills, trusts, etc.) are merely one piece of the management requirements for our client community.

EDLC provides comprehensive services under the practice area of Life Care Planning and Management (LCPM). LCPM includes, but is not limited to:

  • Compilation and assessment of all financial, insurance and asset information
  • Evaluation of medical care and housing needs
  • Evaluation and implementation of estate planning
  • Coordination with other professionals as needed, including geriatric care managers, investment and financial advisors, and tax professionals

Paramount in the planning and management is a focus on assuring that our clients do not run out of money consistent with their goals, do not become a burden on their children, maintain their independence for as long as possible, and live in their home, or their alternative housing choice consistent with their desires.

Finally, EDLC provides comprehensive services for families and particularly individuals whose loved ones are living outside of the DC Metropolitan area.

Unfortunately, the progression of aging involves many losses: the loss of physical strength, the loss or deterioration of health, the loss of peer groups, the loss of financial independence, etc. At EDLC, through Life Care Planning and Management, we partner with our clients and their families to plan ahead for life changes. EDLC recognizes our clients' need for assistance, guidance and representation. We provide the services in a compassionate environment ensuring the integrity of our clients, financial protection and the maximum preservation of assets consistent with public benefits (Medicaid).
