If you have a terminal illness, or are approaching the end of your life, it may be a good idea to make plans for your future care.
Planning ahead in this way is sometimes called "advance care planning", and involves thinking and talking about your wishes for how you are cared for in the final months of your life.
People usually carry out advance planning because they have a condition that is expected to get worse, which may mean they will not be able to make or communicate their decisions in the future.
Anyone can plan for their future care, whether they are approaching the end of life or not. Advance care planning can let people know your wishes and feelings while you're still able to.
Here at Amman Tawe Partnership we want to help and provide the best healthcare service for all aspects and times of life for our patients. Below we have included a booklet to help you understand about Advanced Care Planning, and also included your own future planner for when needed.
