A State Care Planning Council is a single source of community care providers and advisers who help the public deal with eldercare needs. State councils provide a platform for local groups of providers and advisors to offer the following services:
Educate the public on how to plan for long term care
Provide a local source of 15 to 20 different eldercare services through one single state contact
Promote a recognized name offering reliable services
State Council Advisory Boards provide oversight and management of State Care Planning Council members in selected geographic areas. Each Board represents a spectrum of eldercare advisors or providers who are experts in their particular area of service. A Board is composed of companies or individuals representing anywhere from 8 to 20 specific areas of eldercare services. The number of specialties on an Advisory Board is dictated by the needs of the community in the geographic area the Advisory Board serves.
Each Advisory Board is supervised by an Advisory Board Director. Directors are chosen based on their experience and their desire to serve the community. Directors coordinate the activities of Board Members and other members of the State Care Planning Council in their service area.

Include End-Of-Life Planning When Anticipating Long Term Care
May 12, 2016
A key deficiency in the process of planning for long term care occurs when seniors fail to provide for orderly distribution of assets at death and fail to let their family know what to do when the senior can no longer handle his or her own affairs.
Estate planning from a qualified estate planning or elder law attorney, a financial adviser who specializes in estate planning or a CPA planner, is the design of documents to provide the orderly transfer of assets and property to the next generation. Wills, living trusts and a myriad of other trust documents or business arrangements to avoid estate taxes, income tax and real estate capitol gains are some of the principal documents used. Estate planning also concerns issues of business succession or disability of a business owner.
The council offers eldercare workshops for businesses and organizations. These workshops cover various eldercare services and can be tailored to meet your needs, from a 20 minute lunch meeting to a one hour seminar.
