Building a Care Plan

  • What it takes and how to begin. The key to a more secure fulfilling future is blending realism with hope.  That takes knowledge, but also a willingness to learn about the many tools and techniques to help you get started.  We will work together to start identify the goals you want to achieve and the dangers you’ll want to avoid.
  • Concepts and Detailed Structure of the Care Plan, including financial basics. . In this class we will start to be the “architects” of your future.  We’ll work through together the vision of what you would hope to achieve, and the basic information you will need to gather to be ready to take the next steps.
  • Building the Cash flow to support the Vision. This is the step everyone loves to avoid, but it is the key to success. It is where we help you see the details that are so important for your future.

Government Benefits

  • SSI/Medicare, SSDI and Medicaid. The maze of government benefits can be overwhelming.    Let’s take one step at a time so that you can apply for those you are eligible for, and become aware of what might change in the future.
