About this event

Future Matters: Advance Care Planning Presentation

In the same way as it's good practice to have a will to protect our family and loved ones and make our financial wishes known, it’s also important to document our future health care wishes. We can do this in an Advance Care Plan.

Future Matters Islington, the free service run by Gentle Dusk in partnership with Age UK Islington, is here to help you put one in place.

What is an Advance Care Plan?

Advance care planning is the process of documenting your future health care wishes.

No one ever plans to have an accident, but documenting your personal health care and treatment wishes in advance can make all the difference if you are unable to communicate your wishes.

In thinking about this care, some decisions might feel very big (do you want to be resuscitated if you lose capacity?) and others might feel very small (favourite foods that cheer you up!) - but all of them matter.

We will also update on the NHS online Urgent Care planning system being launched for recommendations for the urgent care services to follow in an emergency.

How can I get further support following the presentation?

Future Matters Islington offers free one-to-one support for making an advance care plan, so that your personal health care and treatment wishes are known.

Who is it for?

Future Matters Islington is available to all Islington residents or those with an Islington GP (with an interest in learning more about planning for their future. There are no age, health or financial criteria, planning ahead can help us and our loved ones feel less anxious and more in control at every stage.
