Can I Afford to Care for My Parents?

We’re not getting any younger, and neither are our parents. Most individuals don’t plan for the possible large expense of long-term care for their parents.

Whether it’s assisted living, nursing home, or something in between, let us help you figure out the optimal way to financially assist your parents.

As the sands of time continue to shift, we find ourselves and our parents advancing in age. A reality that many individuals often overlook is the potential significant expense associated with long-term care for their parents. This cost, which can encompass assisted living, nursing home care, or a hybrid solution, can pose a substantial financial challenge if not adequately planned for.

At Landsberg Bennett Private Wealth Management, our expertise lies in assisting you through this intricate financial terrain. We comprehend the complexities of long-term care planning. We can steer you towards identifying the most economically feasible method to cater for your parents' care without compromising your own financial stability.

Our methodology encompasses a detailed examination of your present financial status, comprehension of your parents' care requirements, and investigation of diverse funding alternatives. We take into account all facets, from insurance plans and government schemes to personal savings and investment tactics.

How Can We Address This Concern?

Assessing Current Financial Status

We start by gaining a comprehensive understanding of your financial landscape. This includes your income, savings, investments, and ongoing expenses. This step helps us gauge your financial capacity to contribute towards your parents' care.

Understanding Parents' Care Needs

Next, we work with you to understand the level of care your parents require. This could range from occasional assistance to full-time care. The type and level of care needed significantly impact the associated costs.

Exploring Funding Options

Together, we explore various avenues to fund your parents' care. This could include their own savings and retirement funds, insurance policies, government programs, and your contributions. We aim to optimize these resources to minimize the financial burden on you.

Creating a Financial Plan

Based on the information gathered, we collaboratively develop a financial plan. This strategy delineates how to administer and distribute resources efficiently to cater to your parents' care requirements without jeopardizing your financial security.

Implement a plan

Once we agree on a plan, we assist you in implementing it. This could involve setting up payments for care services, managing investments, or applying for relevant government programs.

Regular Monitoring and Adjustments

The financial plan is not static; it needs regular reviews and adjustments. As your parents' care needs change or your financial situation evolves, we work with you to update the plan accordingly.
