About Care Paths

Care Paths is headquartered in Raleigh, NC. and was created in response to the need to change the culture around advance directives. Our founder, Sarah Jansen spoke to many physicians, nurses, and social workers who shared their concerns about why discussions are avoided until the person is often facing end of life.  

Our vision for the future is that everyone has a voice in their care. We believe that discussions around advance directives and end of life care should begin as a young adult and continue through out a person's life and are seen as a routine healthcare process. 

Care Paths is dedicated to the individuals and families that have had to struggle with extremely difficult decisions because they didn't have advance directives in place. These individuals are the motivation for  Care Paths to work tirelessly until there are no more families struggling to decide what their loved one would want for their care.
