Who will speak for you when you are too ill to make your own healthcare and life decisions? How will you communicate how you want to be cared for in your last days or who will write your eulogy at your funeral? These are important decisions that can easily be forgotten about and left until it is too late.
What is an Advance Care Plan?
An Advance Care Plan (ACP), is a personal statement of wishes, that should you be unable to speak up for yourself at any point in your last days, then it can do so for you. The purpose of an Advance Care Plan is to ensure that the wishes of the person who is dying, are, as far as practically possible, respected and acted upon.
