The Aging Well, Planning Well initiative is part of the Abbotsford Division of Family Practice Older Adults with Complex Conditions Shared Care project. The Older Adults project has multiple partners and supports doctors, other health professionals, and community leaders to better coordinate care for older adults. The project is focused on advance care planning and the prevention and management of chronic health conditions. Fraser Health’s Advance Care Planning team & expertise contributed to the success of this initiative.
