A Cost of Future Care Report is a valuable tool in helping to identify and manage long-term care requirements, whether someone has experienced a catastrophic injury or has ongoing needs due to a chronic condition.

It is a dynamic document that is based on published standards of practice, comprehensive assessment, thorough research, and data analysis. (International Academy of Life Care Planners, 2003.
