National PLAN Alliance
Where does the future-care planning start?
By attending PLAN seminars, parents and other family caregivers learn the process through which a future-care plan is developed and put into practice.
The National PLAN Alliance and its member programs hold regular seminars where families and others learn the basics of future-care planning. While these seminars do not replace professional legal and financial advice, they help families begin to plan and meet with these professionals.
PLAN helps families deal with many tough questions and difficult decisions. During the course of a seminar, participants begin a planning workbook which makes their journey a little easier. It organizes topics, presents important information, and helps families prepare documents that focus their future-care planning efforts.
The result is an ongoing record completed by the entire family, including the family member with a disability. Families update the workbook periodically as their situation changes, and they make their wishes known to significant others who may be involved in the future care of the loved one with a disability.
The National PLAN Alliance (NPA) is the only non-profit organization in America dedicated solely to meeting the planning needs of families with adult children having lifelong disabilities.
