  • The Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network is a non-government, innovative solution that families can use to provide a good standard of care for their disabled family member once the parents have died. The 'circles of support' created for the individuals combat their loneliness and provide them with supporters willing to assist them with financial and legal matters, as well as any medical and logistical problems they may encounter in the operation of their affairs.

    Previously, these people would have been relegated to an institution to live out their days or become anonymous in an impersonal service delivery system. Now they have caring friends and supporters, providing continuity and peace of mind to their parents.

    PLAN offers three basic services:

    1. Future Planning consultations on special needs wills, estates, trusts, and taxes
    2. Development of Circles of Friends
    3. Lifetime commitment to parents
