Comfort Care Booklet
This guide is intended for caregivers of a person whose health has been severely affected by Alzheimer’s disease or by another type of degenerative disease of the brain, such as Parkinson’s disease, the effects of multiple strokes, or even certain forms of multiple sclerosis.
Question Prompt List (QPL)
The QPL is a list of questions designed to help the family carer in asking questions which may help them understand the process better. The QPL is a list of commonly asked questions that the family carers may wish to ask the internal facilitator during the FCC. This list is designed as a guide only and some questions may not be specific to all family carers, however it may be used as a guide of conversation for the family carer to ask questions that may not otherwise have crossed their minds, or in some cases may not be required at all. It is a companion to the Comfort Care Booklet.
These resources were developed by Advance Care Planning (ACP) in Canada, in partnership with the Strengthening a Palliative Approach in Long-Term Care (SPA-LTC) national team at McMaster University as part of a suite of resources to support long-term care professionals, residents and their families.
