Planning Ahead 2018
Planning Ahead is about safeguarding your rights and taking control of your future. It means that your choices will be known and acted on if you cannot express them yourself at some time in the future.
This may happen if you have a sudden accident, become very ill or develop a condition that affects your memory and your planning ability.
Thinking about your future and making your wishes known in advance can help reduce family stress and conflict during times of crisis.
It is important for all adults to understand the benefits of early planning. Various legal tools are available to help secure future health, financial, legal and personal choices – such as:
• an Advance Care Directive
• an Enduring Power of Attorney
• your Will, and
• registration for Organ and Tissue Donation.
It is never too early to plan ahead. Talk to your family now about your future wishes. Act now to safeguard your future rights, wishes, values and preferences.
