Since 1995, as a independent Doctoral prepared certified life care planner and practicing registered nurse case manager, I have received nearly 1,800 case management and legal referrals. I am immediately available to assist you with your case management or life care planning needs. I assess costs of resources and evaluate cost-effective strategies to ensure each individual will be at his or her full functional ability and or develop a life care plan reflecting those needs. Each life care plan is patient specific to their needs, while being sensitive to costs.
