Advance Care Planning

  • Advance Care Planning (ACP) provides an opportunity to plan for future care and support, including medical treatment. 
  • The ACP process helps individuals understand and share their personal preferences and values regarding future care and treatment.
  • ACP can improve health care communication, clarify care goals, prepare individuals for end of life, and decrease family caregiver burden.
  • Most older adults have not engaged in ACP and even fewer have discussed ACP with their family physicians (NIH, 2018).
  • Older adults and families can find the resources and information they need to connect with appropriate ACP supports and services.
