A care plan is an important component of a comprehensive special needs estate plan but it is often overlooked. Parents of a child with special needs should set up a care plan that explains their child’s disability and how it impacts daily life. They should include anything that will help their child receive appropriate care in their absence. They can explain triggers, medical conditions, sensory issues and anything that goes into the regular care of their child. Imagine what a difference it makes to a caregiver and a child with special needs, if the caregiver understands what it takes to meet the child’s needs.
