What is a Life Care Plan?
A Life Care Plan (or Advance Care Plan) is a personal guide or roadmap created in advance to help navigate many of the individual decisions affecting someone’s care in the years ahead. Life Care Plans bring together the many facets of aging, disability, and illness that you or your family member are likely to face, including long term health care, legal and financial planning, and providing for alternative means of support.
