10am-11am | The Power of Collaborative Planning​

 

Presented by:  Connie Wasserman, LCSW and Wendy Goidel Esq.

The course will present the benefits of a holistic multi-disciplinary model and how the collaborative approach is the antidote to fragmentation and enhances the delivery of legal-care services and solutions, especially in a time of crisis. 

Through a mock initial consultation, we will demonstrate the integration of care needs with legal planning and educate caregivers and professionals about various estate and long-term care planning topics. Through case studies, we will demonstrate the power in partnership and how the collaborative model provides benefits and improves outcomes. Understand the difference between proactive and crisis planning and the benefits of the former.    
Identify the funding sources for care, including Medicaid and its financial eligibility requirements.

  • Recognize the goals and objectives of estate and long-term care planning.    

  • Understand the components of a comprehensive life care plan.    

  • Differentiate between different types of trusts used for different purposes.    

  • Appreciate how proactive planning allows individuals to remain in control and avoid court proceedings, especially guardianships and probate.
