Special Care Planning Team


Our Special Care Planning Team’s holistic approach begins with a foundation of the key areas of traditional financial services including financial position, protection, investments, tax management, retirement planning and estate planning. Then, it continues to address the additional planning dynamics that families with special needs face, including:

  • Life Care Planning

  • Family Dynamics
  • Legal and Tax Issues*
  • Financial Resource Management

Our process encourages communication among the family’s network of advisers, provides information, education, resources and specialists, and offers customized options that create financial and legal strategies unique to an individual’s situation.

  • Address Current & Future Primary Issues
