A life care plan is an in-depth assessment of a person’s current and future healthcare needs as a result of catastrophic injury. These injuries could occur at birth, during an accident, or through a negligent act. Because of the unique challenges addressed in a life care plan and the importance of a well-developed plan, it is essential that a life care plan be created by a professional in the field.
Professional life care planners receive specialized training and are certified by recognized credentialing organizations. They maintain their certifications through ongoing training and development and are expected to stay abreast of current events and changes in the field.
