Thinking Ahead

This new resource has been developed by Strathcarron Hospice and Talking Mats to help people with advanced illness or long-term conditions to think ahead and plan for the future.

The Thinking Ahead resource is available in our original format and is made up of 3 topics with specially designed symbols

  • Affairs – includes options such as Will; Power of Attorney; Organ donation; Funeral; Finances etc
  • Care/Treatment – includes options for Place of care; Who gives the care and the Purpose of the care
  • Personal Values – includes options for People; Identity; Spirituality: Privacy etc

The resource can be used to help people have conversations about:

• the extent to which their personal affairs are sorted;
• what they would or would not consider about future treatments and care;
• what is going well/not going well in relation to their personal values
