Planning Ahead

There may be times in your life when you think about your future. It may be as a result of a life changing event and you might wish to make plans, just in case the unexpected happens. You may be the sort of person who likes to plan ahead.

Planning ahead gives you the opportunity to talk about your thoughts and wishes whilst you are still well or have become less well. It is particularly important if you become unable to make decisions for yourself. You may wish to record what your preferences and wishes for care and treatment are. This might include not having any treatment. It can help you and those who support you to understand what is important to you.

The NHS, together with St Margaret's Hospice Care, has produced a Planning Ahead booklet which can help you start these conversations. You may like to work through the document with your family. Our staff would also be pleased to support you with this.
