The Longer You Wait
the More You Risk
A trigger event is the ideal time to put a Pre-Crisis Life Care Plan in place.
Why do people wait? There may be resistance from the older adult who mistakenly believes that planning means giving up control. There might be concerns about money. Maybe family members can’t see the toll on the primary caregiver’s physical health.
Waiting has its risks.
The longer you wait, the more time you’ll waste reacting to one crisis after another as your loved one’s condition declines. The greater the toll becomes on family caregivers. The longer you wait, the greater the odds become that your loved one will end up forced to move to a long-term care facility, a place almost no one wants to be. The longer you wait, the fewer options you’ll have—and the most expensive those options will be.
Early Planning Makes All the Difference
The Life Care Planning process is especially powerful at bringing about the results that everyone wants, especially when the planning process begins soon after a trigger event.
