Many residents of care homes or elder care residential services are frail with declining health. These people benefit from opportunities to plan for future care. Relatives & friends are often involved in these discussions.
- SPICT-4ALL is used to identify care home residents for care planning and (if appropriate) palliative care.
- REDMAP helps us structure a care planning conversation.
- Anticipatory/advance care planning questions (ACQ) guide discussion about specific events where a good planning matters
– personal plans;
– sudden illness,
– resident may die soon
- Our new REDMAP-ACQ guides combine these resources:
–Talking about ACP with residents
–Talking about ACP with relatives & close friends
