What is Protected Tomorrows?
Protected Tomorrows, Inc. is an advocacy firm that enhances the lives of people with special needs through a comprehensive life planning process. We create Future Care Plans™ which address the needs of the individual with developmental disabilities, mental illness, physical disabilities, or cognitive and neurological diseases in the following areas:
- health care
- government benefits
The Future Care Plan is a comprehensive way to approach and address the fears, hopes and dreams of families with a special needs member whether that member has a developmental disability like autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome or Angelmans syndrome; mental illness; other diseases such as Parkinson’s, Lou Gehrig’s (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), and Multiple Sclerosis, or cognitive disabilities such as Alzheimers and dementia in aging family members.
How does Protected Tomorrows help families with special needs?
The first step is to work with the family and/or the individual with the disability to identify the needs. We work together to develop a plan, identify potential solutions, and implement the plan. We can help in many formats depending upon the goals and needs of each family.
We serve as a resource with our connections to legal, financial, medical and social service professionals; parents and other family members; providers; and other advocates working together to find innovative solutions for families.
We help families work through the quagmire of government benefits and the application process for their loved one.
We inspire real change in the special needs community through presentations and workshops on life planning focusing on family communication, special needs trusts and government benefits.
