ACP in Residential Aged Care


ACP should be part of the routine practice for every resident soon after admission to residential aged care.
Many residential aged care facilities will have specific policies in place. They also may have forms and documents they use in their facility to document the resident’s wishes. They are also likely to have defined processes for storing these documents for future use.
