One of the most important attributes of Advance Care Planning is the nomination of a substitute decision maker when an adult person has reached such a state of physical and mental condition that he/she is unable to make a decision of his own healthcare choices. When such a plan is in place, it tends to reduce anxiety and stress in the family and patients themselves. It also helps in improving end of life care.
It is basically let people choose how to live and how to die in accordance with their personal values.
