"Who will take care of my child when I am gone?"
This question is one of the most gut-wrenching considerations when caring for a child with special needs.
Our approach also looks at a different question, focused on you: “How are you looking after yourself?”
Before we can plan for what happens after your death, we feel it’s important to consider your own emotional, physical, and financial well-being.
We know the stress placed on families of children who require special care. The degree of stress may vary depending on the nature of the chronic illness, injury, or the emotional, psychiatric, or other cognitive impairment.
Only then can we explore options for care that takes over when you are no longer able. This typically involves a discussion of who the caregivers will be, how the care will be funded, the necessary estate planning documents that need to be in place, and many other issues.
We understand your situation because we’re living it.
