Due to the interesting and successful presentation from the Community Health Services Tower Hamlets at a recent Carers Forum, carers requested a further workshop with more detail on Advanced Care Planning.
Advance care planning offers people the opportunity to plan their future care and support, including medical treatment, while they have the capacity to do so.
Not everyone will want to make an advance care plan, but it may be especially relevant for:
- People at risk of losing mental capacity - for example, through progressive illness.
- People whose mental capacity varies at different times - for example, through mental illness.
