It can be useful to think early on about how you want to be cared for in the future. This is because as you become less well, you may be less able to make decisions about your care or tell your family, doctors or nurses what you want.
It can be difficult to think about your future care, but it can help you feel more in control. It also makes it easier for the people around you to follow your wishes.
You can talk to your healthcare team at any time about how you would like to be cared for in the last weeks and days of your life. You don’t have to wait for them to speak to you about this.
