Elder law focuses primarily on the needs of families and individuals as they age. There are a number of meaningful benefits derived from long-term care planning. The problem is most people tend to put off even the thought of such planning or are under the mistaken belief that their revocable living trust will protect their assets from the high cost of long-term care.
The benefits derived from estate planning can be considered in terms of different levels or stages of estate planning. These different stages exist on a continuum with one stage blending into the next and with many aspects in common. Foundation Planning, as the name implies, is estate planning which everyone should do. Next on the continuum is Estate Planning which is designed for individuals and couples with larger estates. At the end of the continuum is Integrated Estate Planning designed for individuals and couples who want to integrate asset protection into their estate plan.
