Our new vision
'My future' is a new initiative introduced by Age Cymru to help people have a say on the issues that are important to them should they become ill or frail in later life.
The 'My future' booklet is supported by the Welsh Government, and it allows individuals to keep a record of the issues that are important to them to maintain their self-identity and dignity.
Being in control of the issues that affect our lives promotes our sense of identity and helps us to maintain our dignity.
As we are all individuals, these considerations can range from a strong religious belief to a preference for drinking tea from a bone china cup.
If we are unwell and relying on others to make choices on our behalf, there is a risk that our views and preferences can be overlooked and we can then lose control of the decision-making process.
'My future’ is a contribution towards helping people maintain choice and control in these situations.
A simple way to record the things that are important. 'My future' is one way of helping us to maintain choice and control.
