Personal Planning FAQs
What is "Personal Planning"?
There are TWO key types of planning
- Personal planning – making arrangements for while you are alive but you may need assistance due to an illness, injury or disability; and
- Estate planning – making arrangements for after death.
What does Personal Planning deal with?
Personal planning covers ALL 4 areas of your life: health care, personal care, legal affairs and financial affairs. See chart below.
You may come across the term ‘Advance Care Planning.’ This term is used by the health system. Effective planning is not only about health care and not only about the health system.
Personal planning — in case of incapacity, for end-of-life and for other support needs.
Personal planning does not replace informal help provided by your friends and family. Rather, by making legal documents for personal planning you can give your personal supporters the legal authority necessary to help you. The best time to do personal planning is before a crisis occurs.
