Our dedicated team has a combined 85 plus years of medical and life care planning experience. We’ve combined physician expertise with the best in life care planning methodology to set a new standard in life care planning. Non-physician life care planners don’t have the expertise to establish medical foundations and most physician life care planners don't have the experienced team to provide adequate case management foundations. By providing both we offer higher quality cost effective life care plans that are patient specific and individualized with strong scientific, medical, and case management foundations.
