Life Care Plans are used in cases where the client has sustained a Catastrophic Injury, Chronic Illness and for Elder Care.  By definition a Life Care Plan "is a dynamic document based upon published standards of practice, comprehensive assessment, data analysis, and research, which provides an organized, concise plan for current and future needs with associated costs for individuals who have experienced catastrophic injury or have chronic health care needs”. (International Academy of Life Care Planners)

A Certified Life Care Planner (CLCP) has met the prerequisites for and satisfactorily completed an approved training program. Additionally, the CLCP must have passed a Certification Exam administered by the International Commission on health Care Certification (ICHCC).

Preparation of a Life Care Plan should follow defined Standards of Practice, as outlined by the International Association of Rehabilitation Professionals (IARP) at http://www.rehabpro.org/

Types of injuries for which a Life Care Plan may be written include, but are not limited to:
Traumatic Brain Injury
