Service

Advance care planning provides support for those people who wish to formalise their plans to help everyone to understand their wishes about future medical treatment.

Completing an Advance Care Plan helps people to think and talk about the medical treatment that they would or would not want in the future.

Once people have thought about these situations and have spoken to their families about them we can also assist them to write down what is important to them. An Advanced Care Plan includes the opportunity to nominate a family member or friend to make important decisions on the person’s behalf when they are no longer able to make decisions for themselves about medical treatment. This person is known as the Medical Enduring Power of Attorney.
