Life Care Planning

A life-care plan is an array of the health-related goods and services that correspond to the current and anticipated future needs of individuals who have chronic health care needs. It includes a description of the goods and services by type, the duration (i.e., how long the goods or services will be required, from only once to as long as life expectancy); the frequency and rate (i.e., how often per unit of time the service will be delivered or provided), as well as the unit cost and the present annual cost of each element in the plan. We also conduct architectural accessibility surveys in those instances in which the residences of persons with certain disabling conditions are not fully accessible. Provides thorough documentation of the cost basis for all elements of our life-care plans.

The life-care plan is prepared according to professionally accepted methods and is based upon published, research-based standards of practice, comprehensive assessment, and the unique needs of the individual for whom the plan is being developed.

Finally, the life-care plan is dynamic, i.e., as individual’s circumstances and medical technology change; the life-care plan will be expected to accommodate such changes in a corresponding manner.

Physician Conferencing

We provide the planning and coordination of health care services appropriate to achieve the goal of medical rehabilitation. Medical case management may include, but is not limited to, care assessment, including personal interview with the injured individual, and assistance in developing, implementing and coordinating a medical care plan with health care providers, as well as the individual and his/her family and evaluation of treatment results.John Roberts and Roberts Disability Consultants provide physician conferencing for several types of cases. In workers compensation, a conference with the physician can be achieved to identify restrictions and/or limitations of an injured individual. Thus providing viable employment options for the individual through job analyses that can also be presented to the treating physician for review.

In personal injury cases, a conference with the physician is important to ascertain an individual’s restrictions to be considered when identifying employment opportunities. A conference with the treating physician is also invaluable in a life care plan to ascertain the physician’s medical recommendations for current and future treatment.
