Comprehensive Life Care Planning
You Get the Help You Need with Every Aspect of Your Loved One’s Care
Quality of care leads to quality of life. That’s why every Life Care Plan Implementation Team includes an Elder Care Coordinator who oversees the coordination of your loved one’s health and long-term care, serves as your advocate and empowers you with the knowledge you need to make the right decisions for your loved one in every circumstance.
Elder care coordination services are especially valuable when your loved one is still living at home, which is often the case in a Pre-Crisis Life Care Plan. Getting the right care for your loved one early in his or her end-of-life journey often delays the need for long-term care in an institutional setting. However, whether your loved one is living at home, at an assisted living facility or in a nursing home, you can relax in the knowledge that his or her care is being coordinated by experts who have extensive knowledge about the costs, quality, and availability of resources in the community.
Your Elder Care Coordinator serves as your support line, and your advocate. Your Elder Care Coordinator will:
- Conduct care assessments to uncover potential problems and find solutions
- Help you locate and hire in-home help or other services
- Coordinate with medical and health care providers
- Review medical issues and offer referrals to other geriatric specialists to provide appropriate care in a way that conserves financial resources
- Help you plan for the possibility of incapacity or disability
- Provide support, guidance, and advocacy during a crisis
- Arrange for alternate housing, if needed
- Help to coordinate transfer and transportation of an older person to or from a retirement complex, assisted care living facility, or nursing home
- Provide education, counseling and support
- Prepare and guide you and your family through the Medicaid application process
- Work in collaboration with other members of the support team serving your loved one, including long-term care administrators, accountants, physicians and financial planners to insure that the right professional is helping you at the right time.

The Elder Care Continuum Helps You Understand Your Loved One’s End-of-Life Journey
At the Law Office of Donald D. Vanarelli, we use a model called the Elder Care Continuum to help families understand the natural progression of aging and its impact on a loved one’s health, mobility, housing and financial resources.
Your first meeting with Mr. Vanarelli and his team will focus on identifying your loved one’s position on each resource line of the Elder Care Continuum and to identify gaps in care. When your customized Life Care Plan is developed, it will define, organize, prioritize and mobilize every aspect of your loved one’s care from the time the plan is completed until the end of his or her life.
Caring for a loved one whose health is declining is difficult and confusing. A Life Care Plan created bythe Law Office of Donald D. Vanarelli can help you solve the long-term care puzzle and restore peace of mind.
