Life Care Plan for Kids

A child’s life care plan spans over 50-80 years of their lives. Children epxerience many transitions as they grow, moving through puberty and into adulthood. These different phases of life have different needs. Some of the potential costs include:

  • Loss of schooling/learning
  • Cost of tutoring
  • Hearing issues
  • Sight issues
  • Cost of surgeries
  • Equipment and supplies
  • Mobility aids (leg braces and crutches), orthotics and prosthetics
  • Specialized care
  • Medications
  • Medical evaluations and care
  • Therapeutic evaluations and interventions - physical, occupational, speech therapy
  • Wheelchair needs
  • Architectural renovations
  • Transportation needs
  • Case management
  • Attendant care
  • Residential care
  • Counseling
  • Vocational needs

What can be done?

A life care plan is a blueprint for providing security and services that someone with special needs will require in order to live a fulfilling life, as independently as possible with the best quality of life. It is an evolving and ongoing document that:

  • Assesses the supports that will be required, and their cost, given the individual’s disabilities and desired quality of life;
  • Identifies government benefits for which the person may be eligible;
  • Includes a financial plan for supplementing publicly-provided services, including a special needs trust (SNT) if means-tested government benefits will be required;
  • Recommends guardianship or powers of attorney, if the individual will be unable to make important decisions independently;
  • Suggests a letter of intent containing medical, education and personal details to guide caregivers when parents have passed away. 

We can help.

We provide customized and individualized care plans to maximize quality of life and potential function to live life to the fullest. These include integrative lifestyle support based on the individual's and family customs, background and social environment.
