The Savvy Senior
From Jeff Layne
Managing Partner, Harris & Plottel, LLP
Passages Caregiver Resources Center
Three speakers share information about long-term care. Tatiana Fassieux of Passages calls the subject of long-term care “a puzzle,” mainly because in the U.S. there is no single system that provides such services. Fassieux and the two speakers that follow work give information to their audience to “put the pieces together.” After Ms. Fassieux introduces the subject, Nicole Plottel, an elder law attorney, talks about the aspects of comprehensive long-term planning, which she lists as public benefits (e.g., Medi-Cal, Medicare, VA), finances (e.g., insurance, savings), estate planning (e.g. probate), care plans (e.g., stay in home, assisted living facility), taxes, and liability issues. Nancy Khanchandani then describes the classes and groups that Passages offers to support caregivers.
