Planning Ahead – Take control of your future today

Planning Ahead

Planning Ahead is about taking control of your future. It is about putting things in place. It means that your choices will be known and acted on if you cannot express them yourself at some time in the future.

This may happen if you have a sudden accident, become very ill or develop a condition that affects your memory and your planning ability.

Various legal tools are available to help secure future health, financial, legal and personal choices – such as an Advance Care Directive, Enduring Power of Attorney, Will and registration for organ and tissue donation. Making wishes known in advance can help reduce family stress and conflict during times of crisis.

It is never too early to plan ahead:

  • Talk to your family now about your future wishes!
  • Act now to protect your future rights, wishes, values and preferences!
