Another component of a Life Care Plan, coordination of care among health care providers, facilities, patients and their families can increase the chances of aging in place, improving quality of life, and independence. If aging in place is not possible, care coordination can:
Help in the transition to a suitable and appropriate residential setting
Prepare families to partner with facilities to ensure a better quality of
care and life
Help patients and clients form realistic expectations
Decrease stress and anxiety
