Advanced Care Planning in Palliative Care

Advanced care planning consists of making important decisions about health and finances to prepare for a time when you might not be able to easily express your preferences. This process is ongoing and reflective of your personal goals and values. Most choices made after receiving a serious medical diagnosis are difficult, but our professional palliative care team is here to help.

Salus’ palliative care team in South Bay provides information and guidance to help you feel confident in the choices you make regarding advanced care planning. This key pillar to our palliative care program provides support to both the patient and family as they prepare for the unexpected. The most important goal is to ensure your wishes are understood and respected.

Advanced care planning is invaluable to your loved ones as much as it’s essential for you. Helping them to better understand your wishes and goals reduces stress, anxiety and uncertainty should you reach a point where you can’t fully communicate wishes and goals. It also helps ensure that you maintain control and direction over your treatments in a dignified and respectful way.

The care was wonderful but I just wish it could be longer because it was helping and now it’s done. I need so much more.
