Palliative Care: Advanced Care Planning

Palliative Care

With donor support, MultiCare Palliative Care offers customizable services accompanying the treatment of a life-threatening or life-limiting illness, regardless of a patient’s financial situation. This includes the opportunity for advanced care planning (ACP).

While 92 percent of Americans say it’s important to discuss their wishes for end-of-life care, only one in three has an Advance Directive in place when they pass. And oftentimes, reimbursements only cover the cost of one consult between physicians and their patients.

ACP helps by:

  • Aligning treatment and overall health care with patients’ wishes and values
  • Expanding the conversation beyond the specific ACP consult
  • Offering broader community education on the importance of planning ahead of illness
  • Reducing accrued health care costs

With your generosity, more individuals will have peace of mind knowing their intentions will be honored during their remaining days. More families will have the confidence to speak on their loved one’s behalf. More physicians will recognize the best way to tailor treatment, respecting patients’ priorities.

With your gift, we can provide better, more dignified end-of-life care.
