Co-hosts Tony Fischer and Brandon Thomson will talk about Life Care Planning and how this new concept is revolutionizing Elder Care. First Attorney Brandon Thomson will discuss the legal aspects of the Life Care Plan and how a synchronized Advanced Directive, Power of Attorney and Estate Plan can protect elders from being taken advantage of by the big healthcare systems.
Then Elder Care Coordinator Anthony Fischer will talk about how elder care coordination plays a vital role in making sure the Life Care Plan is doing its job.
Here is a little more about Life Care Planning via The Elder Care Firm Blog
The goal of Life Care Planning is to promote and maintain the health, safety, well-being and quality of life of elders. Every Life Care Plan is designed to achieve three primary objectives:
Make sure the elder gets appropriate care, whether at home or in a residential facility, to maintain the quality of life that he or she desires
Locate public and private sources to help pay for long-term care while resolving issues created by the high cost of care
Offer peace of mind that results when the right choices are made to ensure loved ones are safe and getting the right care while preserving family resources

J. Michael Springmann served in the United States government as a diplomat with the State Department’s Foreign Service, with postings in Germany, India, and Saudi Arabia. He left federal service and currently practices law in the Washington, DC area.
Springmann has been published in numerous foreign policy publications, including Covert Action Quarterly, Unclassified, Global Outlook, the Public Record, OpEdNews, and Foreign Policy Journal.

In 2004, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee recognized Springmann as its Pro Bono Attorney of the Year.
A former member of the US Foreign Service exposes the truth about American involvement in the training and international movement of Muslim terrorists and subsequent increase in jihadist terrorism
During the 1980s, the CIA recruited and trained Muslim and other operatives to fight the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Later, the CIA would move those operatives from Afghanistan to the Balkans, and then to Iraq, Libya, and Syria, traveling on illegal US visas. These US-backed and trained fighters would morph into an organization that is synonymous with jihadist terrorism: al-Qaeda.
J. Michael Springmann, a former US diplomat, names individuals and organizations that deny culpability. He analyzes the effects of a nebulous war on the US economy and infrastructure. After thirteen bloody years, Springmann exposes hypocrisy and deceit wrapped in a sullied flag of patriotism and honor.
