Do you Have Your Advance Care Plan in Place? | Funeral Pre-Planner, Kat Downey
Research shows that when there is an Advance Care Plan in place, the family members are more likely to be satisfied with the medical care provided or withheld. Further there is less strain on the caregivers as fewer aggressive interventions are required at the end of life. Additionally the caregivers are more likely to consider hospice resources in the community or choose to die at home.
