 Advance Care Planning - A Workshop for Carers

Wednesday 24th March 2021 2pm - 3pm

Advance Care Planning is:

  • Thinking about what you would like to happen
  • Thinking about what you don’t want to happen
  • Sharing your thoughts with others
  • Making sure your wishes are known even if you can’t speak up

For a Carer Advance Care Planning with the person you care for means:

  • Knowing rather than guessing
  • Being confident when telling others
  • Avoid making decisions at times of crisis

In the session we’ll talk about:

What you can plan for, how to plan, forms you can use, how to know when the time is right, how to start the conversation.
