Life Care Planning


A New Approach to Tackling the Challenges Faced by the Elderly and the Disabled

Riverside elder law attorney Dennis M. Sandoval is the only lawyer in the Inland Empire who offers true Life Care Planning services. Life Care Planning is a holistic, client-centered approach to the practice of law that helps families respond to every challenge caused by chronic illness or disability of an elderly or disabled loved one. The goal of Life Care Planning is to promote and maintain the good health, safety, well-being, and quality of life of frail seniors, as well as their families. The client and family get access to a wider variety of options for care as well as knowledgeable guidance from a team of compassionate advisors who help them make the right choices about every aspect of their loved one’s well-being.

Our law firm uses an inter-disciplinary team, including a geriatric care manager, that works to assess present and potential future care needs, locate appropriate care providers, and ensure that the care being provided is the highest quality for what is being paid. This approach relies less on crisis-oriented transactions and more on the development of on-going life-long relationships with families.

The heart of the elder-centered law practice, a Life Care Plan, defines, organizes, prioritizes, and mobilizes every aspect of the senior’s care. In addition to traditional asset-focused elder law services such as estate planning, asset preservation, and public benefits qualification, a Life Care Plan typically includes provisions for care coordination, family education, health care and financial decision-making, care advocacy, crisis intervention, support and other services. Every Life Care Plan is designed to achieve four primary objectives:

  • Make sure the senior gets appropriate care, whether at home, in an assisted living facility or a nursing home in Riverside or San Bernardino Counties
  • To maintain the quality of life that the senior and family desires.
  • Locate public and private sources to help pay for long-term care while resolving issues created by the high cost of such care.
  • Offer peace of mind that results when the right choices are made to ensure elder loved ones are safe and getting the kind of care they desire while also preserving family resources.

The attorneys, legal staff and care coordinators who work for Dennis M. Sandoval, A Professional Law Corporation, use the Life Care Plan to help families understand the natural progression of aging and its impact on a loved one’s health, mobility, housing, and financial resources. At your initial meeting we schedule a personalized assessment by our Elder Care Coordinator. Gaps in care can then be identified and solutions discussed for closing those gaps. When your customized Life Care Plan is developed, it will define, organize, prioritize, and mobilize every aspect of your elder or disabled loved one’s care, to allow him or her to maintain the quality of life that he or she desires and deserves.

If you are caring for a senior in San Bernardino County or Riverside County, you should take advantage of the free one hour Life Care Planning consultation offered by our law firm. You will meet with one of our elder law attorneys at our Riverside office to determine whether our staff, consisting of a certified geriatric care manager, paralegals and elder law attorneys, can assist you in developing a plan for the care of loved one at home or in a long term care facility.
