The topic of palliative care is difficult to discuss even at the best of times. End of life choices are commonly a deeply personal topic and given the choice to plan and discuss, everyone has their own opinion on how they would like things taken care of when it comes to their own time. Surprisingly though, you may discover that very few have actually made plans for their end of life.
In a recent survey by Palliative Care Australia, it found just 5 percent of the 1,000 people surveyed had made an advance care plan, setting out how they would like to be cared for at the end of their life.
A care plan helps friends and loved ones make the difficult decisions at the end of your life, and carry out your healthcare wishes in the manner of your choosing.
