Life Care Planning
A Life Care Plan is an important evaluation when an individual’s injury is so severe that they will impact the person’s ability to perform their activities of daily living. If an individual uses a cane, walker, or wheelchair for mobility, they will require a Life Care Plan. When a client already receives home care assistance either from a family member or a home care agency, a Life Care Plan evaluation is necessary and beneficial to either Plaintiff or Defense attorneys.
It consists of seven parts including:
Life Care Plan Interview
Assessment as to the impact of the persons’ injuries on their activities of daily living
Formulation of an objectively detailed assessment of their needs
Research as to the cost of required items in the client´s geographical area
The above will create an important roadmap so that the Life Care Planner can reach an opinion as to the disabled person’s needs. The Life Care Plan also includes an Employability and Loss of Earning Capacity evaluation.
