If you’re family caregiver who has consulted Google to find information and resources, you’ve probably discovered that the free resources you can find online are every bit as fragmented as our nation’s long-term care system.
Educational resources organized by silos are not what family caregivers need. They need help understanding the big picture. They need context. And that’s why the free resources such as videos, blog articles, podcasts, and free downloads offered by many Life Care Planning Law Firms are so valuable to family caregivers who are trying to make sense of their situation.
If there’s a Life Care Planning Law Firm in your area, chances are good that you’ll find a blog on the firm’s website. If you’re not sure whether there’s a Life Care Planning Law Firm near you, visit the Life Care Planning Law Firms Association website at www.lcplfa.org and click on the yellow Find a LCPLFA Member box. Not only will you be able to locate any Life Care Planning Law Firms in your area, you’ll be able to access the blogs and other free resources on the websites of Life Care Planning Law Firms from across the country.
If you click through to the websites of Life Care Planning Law Firms Association members, you’ll find that most firms are very serious about their mission to educate the public. Many Life Care Planning Law Firms now offer multi-media resources like videos, podcasts and free downloads accessible from their websites and social channels.
Brogan & Yonkers, a Life Care Planning Law Firm in Marquette, Michigan, is one of those firms. Co-founders Scott Brogan and John Yonkers capture video recordings of their monthly educational phone calls for clients and then share the videos on Facebook live and on the firm’s website at www.upelderlaw.com. “It started as a monthly client phone call that we would open up to the public every few months,” Scott notes. “It was very popular with our clients, so we took it online. Now, we often have as many as 20 people participating live in these 15 to 20-minute sessions.”
Some Life Care Planning Law Firms offer extensive collections of educational videos accessible on their websites and YouTube channels. Takacs McGinnis Elder Care Law in Hendersonville, Tennessee; Kimbrough Law in Athens and Gainesville, Georgia; The Kabb Law Firm in Beachwood, Ohio; and Flammia Elder Law Firm in Winter Park, Florida are just a few of the many firms that offer educational videos, all free for the taking. Covering a wide variety of topics related to the legal, financial, and personal care of older adults, these videos provide vital information while offering family caregivers that all-important big picture perspective.
Videos aren’t the only way Life Care Planning Law Firms are working to educate the public about elder care. Some firms, such as Takacs McGinnis Elder Care Law and The Heartland Law Firm in Glenview, Illinois offer free educational podcasts accessible on popular podcasting platforms like Apple podcasts, Google Play, and Stitcher. Others, like Drazen Rubin Law in Milford, Connecticut, Takacs McGinnis Elder Care Law, Kimbrough Law, and Flammia Elder Law Firm offer free downloadable documents designed to help families better understand the challenges they’re facing.
No matter where you are on the elder care journey, the resources offered by Life Care Planning Law Firms will give you the knowledge, support, and perspective you need to thrive along the way.
