These pamphlets were made to help persons with serious illnesses and their families know what to expect at the end of life so they can plan ahead.

They cover the following:

  • Advanced Frailty
  • Lung Disease
  • Dementia
  • Heart Failure
  • Advanced Kidney Disease
They can be used independently or with the Illness Trajectory Complementary Conversation Guides
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.
