Planning for your future care

There may be times in your life when you think about the effects of becoming seriously ill or disabled. Sometimes this arises as a result of ill health, an accident or other life changing event. But for others, it’s because you are the sort of person who likes to plan ahead.

The following booklet provides an explanation about Advance Care Planning and the different options open to you. It contains some of the terms contained within the framework of the Mental Capacity Act (2005). 

Advance Care Planning (ACP) is a process that supports adults at any age or stage of health in understanding and sharing personal values, life goals, and preferences regarding future medical care. Exploring your options, identifying your wishes and preferences, specific treatment plans and making a Lasting Power of Attorney are some of the topics covered.  Please download our 'Planning For Your Future Care' booklet below.
