    ABSTRACT: Purpose of the Study:This study examines (a) the association between being a care recipient and end-of-life care planning (EOLCP) and (b) the extent to which personality traits moderate the relationship between care receipt and EOLCP. DESIGN AND METHODS: Data are drawn from the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study, a survey of Wisconsin high school graduates from 1957 to 2004. We used data on EOLCP among older adults in the most recent (2003-2004) wave of this survey. Hierarchical logistic regression models are used to estimate the effects of care receipt and the moderating effects of personality. RESULTS: Compared with their peers who are not receiving care, care recipients are more likely to engage in informal discussion on EOLCP. This association between care receipt and informal EOLCP is strengthened when the individual scores high on openness. IMPLICATIONS: Health practitioners should take into account older adults' care needs and differing personality traits while helping older adults make successful EOLCP.
