Decades LLC provides a variety of elder services from its office in Albuquerque, New Mexico. To help families secure a plan of action for a loved one before a serious medical condition manifests, Decades LLC offers the Springing Care Program.
The Springing Care Program assists families in creating a care plan for Decades staff to follow in the event of a medical emergency or onset of a serious chronic illness. Designed to help families achieve peace of mind regarding a loved one’s care, the program establishes a support system consisting of legal professionals knowledgeable in the areas of medical consultation, guardianship and conservatorship procedures, and power of attorney. Program services focus primarily on appointing a power of attorney or agent who acts as power of attorney should the power of attorney appointee be unavailable when an emergency occurs.
Initial consultation appointments are offered at no cost, although plan establishment requires a one-time setup fee of $150 for individuals and $250 for couples. The fee covers expenses associated with collecting the necessary personal, medical, legal, and financial information, in addition to support services for the completion and acquisition of legal documents. Clients will receive an emergency packet of information and an emergency contact card upon complete enrollment. Renewals occur annually and require a $50 fee for continued service.
