A Life Care Plan is an individualized, comprehensive, and thorough analysis of the patient’s needs over his/her remaining lifespan, specific to the medical condition. Utilizing a consistent scientific approach to project and estimate both the medical and non-medical needs of the person with a catastrophic injury, the Life Care Plan addresses and projects the costs and frequency of needed goods and services over the estimated lifespan.
At Tower MSA Partners, the Life Care Plan is developed by a trained Certified Nurse Life Care Planner, utilizing the nursing process as well as employing research and case management skills. Following completion of the Life Care Plan, the life care planner will evaluate the effectiveness of the plan for optimal outcomes.
The Life Care Plan serves as a guide for the patient, family, caregivers, and payer to follow to ensure that funds will be available over the patient’s lifetime for both medical and non-medical needs. It is an invaluable tool to ensure that the patient obtains and maintains the highest level of functionality and quality of life while utilizing the allocated resources identified and outlined in the individualized plan.
