Planning for your future care

Sadly, many people do not find out that they are dying until they run out of time and are too ill to make plans and do the things they want to do. 

If people can be identified as likely to die in the next 12 months, there is time to plan ahead.

There are lots of things you can do to plan ahead even if you are not ill – just ask yourself ‘what if I was told I had a week to live?’ then think:

  • Will those around me know how best to support me?
  • Will they know about any strong wishes I have about how I want to be cared for?
  • Will I have made a will?
  • Will those I love know how I feel about them?
  • Will relatives know of any plans I’ve made for after my death?
  • Will I want to spend the last few days of my life worrying about all this?
