Part of remaining in control of your care is making sure that your wishes are known by your family, carers and friends.
Are there things you would like to achieve, or places you would like to go? Do you have specific wishes for your care? Why not share those thoughts with those around you?
Filling out an Advance Care Plan will ensure that healthcare professionals, carers and family will know which treatments and care that you would or would not like/don’t want to receive.
Talking to family and friends about how you would like to be remembered puts you in control, and gives family and friends the reassurance that they’ are doing the right thing.
