Compassion in Dying

by | Feb 14, 2017 | Health, News, Support

Nobody plans to be unwell, or unable to say what they want. Be prepared for the unexpected by planning ahead for your treatment and care.

Many people assume that there’s nothing they can do to prepare for their future treatment and care. But there are things we can do now to plan ahead and ensure that what matters to each of us is known about at the end of life.

This is the focus of a new campaign that OPAAL are supporting called Make It Your Decision which has been launched this week by Compassion in Dying – the first of its kind to encourage people to plan ahead for their treatment and care and make their wishes known. The campaign will convey the importance of considering; discussing and taking action to document your wishes, the simple and free ways to plan ahead, and that there is support available to do so.
