Cariloop announced last week its strategic partnership with InterActive Legal, the premier Knowledge Company for lawyers specializing in Elder Law, Estate, and Special Needs Planning.
This partnership enables Cariloop to seamlessly provide its case management tools and concierge coaching services to the thousands of specialist lawyers already relying upon InterActive Legal as they guide clients and families through the maze of elder care, one of the most intricate parts of the elder planning process.
“Care for one’s parents, or one’s spouse, involves almost every challenge—medical, financial, legal, and emotional. One of our goals at InterActive Legal is to provide the very best resources to the thousands of lawyers who rely upon us to help them satisfy their clients’ needs,” stated Michael Graham, CEO of InterActive Legal. “The Cariloop partnership enables us to do just that. Cariloop’s unique tools and services, including particularly the on demand concierge service, is of great value in helping clients plan for and manage care during difficult life transitions.”
“As a nation, we place some of the most complex requirements upon those least likely to understand. More than half of those living long enough to need care also need support through programs like Medicaid. Lack of understanding, and failure to consult experts in advance, often means that more of the family funds are spent than needed to be. These are the areas where the attorney experts usually save the family far, far more than they cost. We educate, provide the document drafting tools, and the community that such lawyers need,” Graham, continued. “Families need an integrated approach.”
As elder care considerations become more and more common amongst our baby boomer population, Elder Law and Estate Planning Attorneys are playing a bigger role in how families plan for the future. Cariloop’s new portal, scheduled to be released to the public in May 2015, will enable people to privately work together as a unit and access licensed or certified professionals that can guide them as they make decisions together.
It was the very idea of customized planning and simplicity of use for families that attracted Graham to the mission of Cariloop.
“It is their combination of talent, vision of the future, and ability to humanize technology. Cariloop represents a great blend of product and service. An experience like none other for me personally when I used it for my 96-year-old father transitioning from independent living this year to either assisted living or long-term care from a fractured pelvis. InterActive Legal wants that same experience for our all of our attorneys and their clients,” said Graham.
With the ability to potentially work with thousands of legal professionals across the country, the partnership serves as a major building block for Cariloop in their growth strategy.
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with the InterActive Legal team and their membership base,” said Michael Walsh, CEO of Cariloop. “Too many families and caregivers are going through this stressful process alone and without a plan in place. By now equipping InterActive Legal members with Cariloop tools and coaches, these Elder Law and Estate Planning Attorneys can provide a truly amazing experience for their clients in this situation.”
Cariloop empowers people to take control of their senior care and service choices in a revolutionary way. By coaching families through this difficult time and helping them connect with the providers, services, and resources that best match their situation, Cariloop serves as their partner as they plan for and manage this important transition in life.
