Cost of Future Care
A Cost of Future Care Report, also called a Life Care Plan or Future Care Cost Analysis, is used to outline the medical and rehabilitation needs and associated costs for an individual who has experienced catastrophic injury or has chronic healthcare needs.

Life Care Planning (Cost of Future Care Analysis)
This comprehensive assessment examines the future costs of care for an individual following injury or disability. It includes all areas of living including self-care, productivity, and leisure at home and in the community throughout a lifespan. Recommendations for equipment, personal care assistance, residency, community support and future opportunities (to improve independence) are included. The assessment is based on a thorough investigation of current costs in the location where the individual plans to reside or currently resides. Our occupational therapists are Matheson trained Life Care Planners (US-based training) with a proven record, providing excellent documentation and fair analysis in many Medical-Legal cases for both defendant and plaintiff counsel in the US and Canada.
" I have worked with a lot of life care planners and found you extremely knowledgeable. I particularly enjoyed and valued your hands-on approach and the continuous interaction between the two of us regarding the development of a plan and ensuring the client’s needs are being taken care of. Most importantly and relevant to our case, the constant communication ensured both of us were getting the most accurate information from the family.” -Nick K.
