Having the trauma of your spouse catastrophically injured is heart wrenching, but to find guidance to direct your future in a Life plan for care of them by Mrs. Little was divine. She directed me to what equipment, services and even house changes would be needed down to the penny for his total life. This could be sent to represent him in any court action. If you are a spouse, trust me , you need a Life plan for your loved one."

Spouse of Injured Employee

From a nurses perspective, I knew I could take care of my husband but I had no idea how to plan it the rest of his life or the cost. Mrs. Little and her services found needs I didn't know we would have. Without her services , I would not have known how to look beyond today. I recommend a Life care Plan know matter how much you think you already know."

What is a Life Care Plan?

A Life Care Plan is a dynamic document based upon published standards of practice, comprehensive assessment, data analysis, and research. This plan provides an organized and outlined strategy for current and future needs with present costs for individuals who have experienced a catastrophic injury or who has chronic health care needs. These plans are utilized in case litigation and long-term planning.
