Based on rehabilitation, life planning attracts certified professionals from various fields of practice, including rehabilitation supervision, rehabilitation nursing, rehabilitation psychology, physiotherapy, case management and other areas. While not mandatory, it is helpful that a life care planner is also certified as a case manager or at least has experience in managing real cases and implementing life care plans. Life care planning is a consistent process for evaluating the patient and disability to identify all needs imposed by the onset of that disability.

A life care plan provides peace of mind to those closest to the patient, while promoting good and long health for the person affected by the aging process of life. When the person is no longer considered self-sufficient, the life care plan removes the burden of independence and implements the support system already implemented. In case of loss of support from a family member, the plan remains intact and provides peace of mind that the individual will still provide. ACP not only enables patients and their families to make informed decisions about healthcare, but also supports the provision of high-quality care and more effective use of healthcare.

This includes the customer’s financial image, in which a professional life care planner can provide the public benefits that an older or disabled client may qualify for. It also includes the physical and mental health of the client, as the services and devices necessary to ensure a client’s safety, well-being and quality of life. The responsibility of the life care planner is to set achievable rehabilitation goals and to ensure that all parties involved in the process understand why specific elements are included, how / when services should be provided and how best to implement the plan. As an educator, the planner should be able to clearly communicate the nature of a patient’s disability, the remaining functional limitations and the effects of a disability during the patient’s life expectancy. Although it has been shown that terminating a physician’s orders for life support treatment improves end-of-life care for nursing home residents, 27 randomized controlled trials have not been investigated if end-of-life care planning improves.
The life care plan covers all aspects of a disability from the beginning to the end of life expectancy. Due to the nature of the task, this requires the development of information among a wide range of medical and health professionals. No doctor or rehabilitation professional who completes a life care plan can do it in a vacuum.

The first time the concept of life care planning was formalized, it appeared in a legal publication, Damage in Tort actions by Deutsch and Raffa.3 This publication described a life care plan and its suitability for tort cases, especially useful in dealing with catastrophic injuries. The first generation of authors of these expert reports generally came from vocational rehabilitation or nursing institutions. Over the years, it has emerged that the most comprehensive environment in which a life care plan is used is due to the need to qualify an expert with regard to Daubert, Kumho Tire and other expert witness decisions.
