Identify your wishes and preferences

The wishes you express during advance care planning are personal to you and can be about anything to do with your future care. You may want to include your priorities and preferences for the future, for example:

  • How you might want any religious or spiritual beliefs you hold to be reflected in your care
  • The name of a person/people you wish to act on your behalf at a later time
  • Your choice about where you would like to be cared for, for example at home, in a hospital, nursing home or a hospice
  • Your thoughts on different treatment and types of care that you might be offered
  • How you like to do things, for example preferring a shower instead of a bath or sleeping with the light on
  • Concerns or solutions about practical issues, for example who will look after your dog should you become ill

You may decide to write down these wishes and preferences in an Advance Statement.
