Join Julie Skelton from Marie Curie and find out about creating an advance care plan, how it can be helpful and how to start the conversation.
Advance care planning with Marie Curie
Advance care planning can be a helpful way of looking towards the end, when someone has a very serious condition.
Join Julie Skelton, Service Manager and a member of the Community Nursing Team at Marie Curie, alongside ACS’s own carer support staff, to consider what advance care planning is and how people can find it useful.
For someone looking forward for themselves, it includes thinking about things you’d like to happen, thinking about what you don’t want to happen, sharing your thoughts with others and making sure your wishes are known even if you can’t speak up. And for a carer, advance care planning with the person you care for can mean knowing rather than guessing, being confident when telling others, and avoiding making decisions at times of crisis.
In the session we’ll talk about what you can plan for, how to plan, what forms you can use, how to know when the time is right, and how to start the conversation.
