Advance Care Directives

An Advance Care Directive can sometimes be referred to as a living will. It is written by an individual about & for themselves.

An Advance Care Directive is a written document of your preferences for future care. It “is an important way of letting people know your wishes about your healthcare and treatment should you find yourself in a position where you are seriously ill or injured and not able to make decisions”.

Advance Care Directives can also formally appoint a substitute decision-maker and differ between states and territories – some have specific forms you can utilise. You can learn more about the legal differences by state/territory and requirements by clicking here.

Benefits include:

  • It ensures that people receive the care they actually want – not what other people may want or believe the person wants.
  • It alleviates anxiety for the person & their family/friends by providing clarity & certainty for all concerned.
  • It reduces potential conflicts.
  • For organisations, health professionals, carers etc., it establishes wishes & expectations.
  • It mitigates against unnecessary transfers to hospital and unwanted treatment.

The carers at InPlace Care can make sure they act on the wishes of the Client and provide support and care the way you want or need it, it’s your choice to direct. Sign Up, see and speak to all our fabulous carers.
