Planning your future care

1) Plan care while you are well

Couple reading

You are focussed on health and making the most of every day. Sometimes to stay well and independent you have to have conversations about your wishes, hopes and fears for the future and how you would like to be cared for if you become ill.

Think of this as just another part of your self management of your COPD which is all about informed choices and the knowledge to make those choices.

Good planning lets everyone involved know your wishes.
We all need to start communicating and being more open to discuss our wishes with our family/partners as a first step.

There is no right or wrong way; you know best what matters to you.
