Advance Care Planning

Advance Care Planning – thinking about your future health care

Advance Care Planning is an opportunity to think about what is important to you, what matters, what makes life meaningful. This can help you talk about it with your family and friends.

The important first steps are thinking about and talking about what you want – because it’s the conversations and the shared understanding of what matters that makes the biggest difference. Once you have done that, it is very helpful to write down the key points and any specific wishes in a plan so that others can refer to it.

It was okay to tell Dad that it is okay to go, we have his plan so we knew what his wishes were.

The Advance Care Planning website provides information on how you can do this.
