Planning for the future
Everyone’s journey into aged care is different.
Sometimes you get time to plan and sometimes you need to make a snap decision due to illness or accident.
In an ideal world, you or your loved one will already have discussed and filled out your advance care planning documents before entering aged care.
Advance care planning is an ideal way to start the conversation about choices for future health care.
A good way to think about advance care planning is as a living will. It is a way a person can let their family, doctors and carers know what health care is important to them.
