photoFrequently Asked Questions

Why Plan?

Planning allows for:

  • Exploring and understanding options

  • Giving a person a with a disability the opportunity to receive tangible assets to ensure the best possible quality of life

  • Making sure persons with disabilities have choice

  • Allows for peace of mind for caregivers

 

Who should be involved in the Planning?

At Future Care Planning Services we believe the entire family and trusted friends can all be part of the process.


When should I call Future Care Planning Services?

Planning for a person with a disability should begin now, if you have not already started planning. Future Care Planning Services works with people with disabilities age 18 and older.

The following is a list of points in time when planning can be critical.

  • At the time of a diagnosis of a long-term chronic disability

  • At the onset of a serious illness for anyone in the family

  • When a person with the intellectual disability or developmental disability turns 18

  • When the person with a disability is awarded a malpractice or personal injury award from a lawsuit

  • When the person with a disability is notified of a retroactive lump-sum payment from the Social Security Administration

  • When a parent or spouse of the person with a disability becomes disabled or dies

 

How much does it cost?

We charge a nominal commitment fee of $350.00 for comprehensive planning and 2 years of follow-up.  The total price for planning with a 17-A guardianship is $450.


Are payment plans available? 

Yes, payment plans can be arranged.


How many planning sessions can I expect?

Generally there are four scheduled meetings.

    1. Meeting to discuss the program, talk about your specific concerns and the completion of paperwork
    2. Letter of Intent Interview
    3. Interview with a Planning Specialist
    4. Presentation of Plan and explanation of options

 

How long does the planning process take? 

Our goal is to complete the planning process within a 3-month time frame. However, the guardianship process often takes longer to complete.
