It is important to plan for the care they will need for the long term. Thankfully, Bercik Law can help you prepare and develop for a lifetime of care.
Special Needs planning focuses on putting the supports in place to set the family up for long range success. Looking beyond tomorrow provides perspective and long-range planning ideas for families to visualize the basic needs of their child from school age, into young adulthood, and the twilight years. Determining who will provide what support will help identify gaps so that the family can focus on filling in those gaps.
Special Needs Trusts
Special Needs Trusts and Special Needs Supplemental Trusts provide the framework to allow a person with disabilities and their families to provide for circumstances and opportunities for people with disabilities where the costs would not otherwise be covered by public benefits. Depending on the needs of the family, a Special Needs Trust, a Supplemental Needs Trust, or an ABLE account may be appropriate
Depending on the capacity of your loved one with a disability, either a Power of Attorney with Supported Decision Making plans in place, or a Guardianship, will be appropriate. Guardianships may be Full or Limited depending on the needs of the individual. Proper planning will ensure continuity of care for your loved one, along with autonomy, dignity, and humanity.
