Advance Care Planning
- Location: Age UK Lambeth
- Price: Free
Please note, this service is not available outside Age UK Lambeth - Head Office's catchment area.
Telephone: 03333 603700
We provide free one-to-one support to help you plan ahead and record your future treatment and care wishes. So, if you become unwell and are unable to tell people what you do and don’t want, your loved ones and the professionals involved in your care will know what is important to you.
You can use your plan to record personal details such as what you like to eat, how you style your hair and clothes, or your daily routines and care preferences, for example requesting male or female carers. You can also explain any religious practices or values that are important to you, and care requirements for any long-term conditions, or for other family members, you might look after.
You can make an advance care plan at any time and you don’t need a solicitor to do it. We can tell you about the different planning documents you can use, help you decide which ones you want, support you to complete them and then share them with the right people.
The service is for anyone in Lambeth who would like one-to-one help to make an advanced care plan. This includes people with long-term conditions, people with early-stage dementia and unpaid informal carers.
