Advance Care Plan

Why do I need an Advance Care Plan?

To spare your family from having to make decisions for you.

If you’re unable to speak for yourself, those making decisions may default to keeping you alive no matter what.

Not planning means you’re risking getting care against your wishes.

If you don’t plan for the care you want, who will?

What is an Advance Care Plan?

Advance Care Plan, also known as Advance Care Directive or Living Will, is a document which tells others about the quality and type of medical care you would prefer at the end of your life. In a medical emergency your plan will guide your family and doctors to care for you the way you want them to.

It’s easy to complete the questionnaire and share it with people you trust. Your final wishes are safely and securely stored on Australian Servers and you can easily edit and share your personal Advance Care Plan (ACP) with your family, friends and other important professionals such as your GP and Solicitor.
