Vocational Life Care Planning


A Vocational Life Care Plan encompasses helping an individual prepare, enter, or return to an educational or work setting following a catastrophic injury at any age.


The Vocational Life Care Planning process involves the lifetime education, vocational and rehabilitation needs of individuals suffering catastrophic injury.  Assistive technology encompasses a wide range of devices and training designed to offset the limitations of individuals with functional impairments. This provides the individual the opportunity  to work and earn income to their maximum potential. It is based upon assessment, data analysis and comprehensive research, which provides an organized plan outlining an injured individual’s annual and long-term vocational costs over their lifetime.


The Vocational Life Care Plan is used for the purpose of estimating  non-medical needs of a client with a catastrophic injury. Life Care Plans are typically developed for individuals who have experienced catastrophic injury or have chronic health needs. Whether it is for establishing insurance reserves, litigation, or trusts, a Life Care Plan ensures funds will be available to properly care for the individual through their lifetime. It is tailored to the individual's current and anticipated vocational needs throughout life expectancy and projects the educational costs needed to remain competitive in the employment arena over their projected life span. It provides a comprehensive overall post injury profile.


Life Care Plans provide information in present day costs including the care needs and frequency through the life span for the following areas:


  • Educational or Vocational Supplies & Equipment
  • Vocational Testing
  • Assistive Technology
  • Orthotics / Prosthetics
  • Education & Vocational Needs
  • Transportation
  • Leisure & Recreation
  • Home Renovation
