Below is a document you can download that talks you through Advanced Care Planning.
Advance Care Planning is a way to discuss and record what is important to you about your care if one day you are unable to tell people yourself (e.g. if you are too unwell). By discussing and recording your wishes and decisions in this booklet (Your Advance Care Plan) it will help to ensure that health and social care professionals and your family take into account what you want if you cannot not tell them yourself.
AgeUK may be able to help you complete forms. There is also a lot of help on their website.
