Making Your Last Wishes Matter: A Life Care Plan Case Study

Published: November 9, 2021

When Margaret and Howard reached out to our team, Margaret had recently been diagnosed with inoperable, terminal cancer and the doctors explained that with her condition, she was looking at about 6 months to live. Married for 30 years, Margaret and Howard faced this crushing news and had many questions regarding her end-of-life care and what would happen to Howard upon her passing. As elder law attorneys, we often receive these types of calls and pride ourselves in offering not only legal but emotional support in these situations.

When Margaret and Howard called our office, they wanted to talk about the inevitable and how to plan for that, and what the next steps would be. After a lengthy and emotional consultation. Margaret was able to articulate her wishes and Howard was able to understand, a little better, how he was going to need to manage their affairs upon her passing. Together, we were able to create a plan for his future after Margaret passed. While establishing a plan was important and necessary for them, it obviously didn’t make the grief any less severe. They were, however, able to find some solace in the fact that a plan was in place for Margaret’s end-of-life care and for Howard’s affairs for when she was gone. Establishing this plan now, and expressing their wishes and desires, allowed them to alleviate some of the stress during these trying times.

CLIENT Testimonial

Scott Bloom is one of the most caring, responsive, elder law attorney you can find in central New Jersey. He has been a great support not only for my parents but also for me and my siblings. We are deeply grateful for everything he has done over the past 3 years. I am thankful ever day that he came into our lives. In the past year, we lost our father to the terrible disease of dementia, but we are relieved to know that our mother is still in good hands with Scott by her side. Our entire family highly recommends Scott Bloom and his team!

Scott was absolutely the right attorney at the right time for us. We would highly recommend him and his team.
