Chapter 9 offers recommendations for how family members, faith communities, legal and medial professionals, and society as a whole can provide improved support for caregiving. It addresses how families can better prepare before a crisis happens. It then looks at how government policies could be reformed to encourage advance planning and to support caregiving. Next, it offers suggestions on how legal, health care, and religious professionals can help families. It emphasizes that formal and informal planning methods can increase the ability of caregivers, family members, health professionals, and spiritual leaders to know and contribute to honoring the wishes and values of the seriously ill and dying parent. Finally, it returns to the complexities of twenty-first-century caregiving.
