DEVELOPMENT OF A LIFE CARE PLAN


“The Life Care Plan is a dynamic document based upon published standards of practice, comprehensive assessment, data analysis and research, which provides an organized, concise plan for current and future needs with associated cost for individuals who have experienced catastrophic injury or have chronic health care needs.”  (International Academy of Life Care Planners, 2003).

This service includes the development of a life care plan that identifies the individual’s needs related to the injury/disability and provides information regarding the associated costs.  This service also includes expert deposition and trial testimony regarding the plan.

The Life Care Plan is divided into 17 sections.  Each section includes recommendations, the identity of the person making each recommendation, the timeframe the recommendation is in effect, the frequency of the recommendation or replacement schedule, the purpose and cost of the recommendation, and any pertinent comments. 

The 17 sections include:  Evaluations, Diagnostic Testing and Educational Assessments, Medical Care (physician), Surgical Treatment, Therapeutic Modalities (allied health), Home Care or Facility-Based Care Needs, Medication Needs, Supply Needs, Orthopedic Equipment Needs, Orthotic or Prosthetic Needs, Recreational Equipment Needs, Aids for Independent Function, Wheelchair Needs, Wheelchair Accessories and Maintenance, Transportation Needs, Home Furnishings and Accessories, and Architectural Renovations.

An additional document, “Potential Complications,” is provided.
