Crisis

 

Sometimes life catches us by surprise.

 

LifePlanning places emphasis on pre-planning for realistic scenarios, but sometimes life catches us by surprise and the strategic plan we were following needs to be enacted, or we need to create a plan in a hurry. We call these Crisis Cases

Below are resources to help  you determine what to do in a particular crisis scenario. Look them over and select the example that best matches your situation. Your situation likely fits into one or more of the following categories:


Health Icon Health Crisis:

  • If a loved one has been diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer’s, or another terminal or debilitating illness...
  • If a loved one is showing signs that they are no longer able to provide for their own care needs...

Housing Icon Housing Crisis:

  • If a loved one’s care needs cannot be safely addressed at home...
  • If a loved one is in the hospital or rehabilitation center and wants to return home but is being told that they cannot safely do so...

Financial Icon Financial Crisis:

  • If a loved one is faced with excessive costs of care, or anticipates facing such costs due to a recent diagnosis...
  • If your loved one wants to preemptively form a plan to protect assets from future health issues...
