Helping you make the right choices

Be ready for it will help you to talk openly about dying and plan ahead so that you can make the right choices about end of life care. Many people find it hard to talk about death and dying. This could be because death may feel a long way off, or you may feel too young to talk about it. But we do need to talk about it and be prepared and share our plans so that the people around us know how we want to be cared for. This website will help you to do just that.

You don’t have to be ill or dying to make plans for your future, but it is important to start thinking about your wishes. By making these choices clear to your family, carers or friends, they can ensure your preferences are followed when you reach the end of your life. Be ready for it will help you think about all the options, such as where you would prefer to die, and will also help you to get support if you are on your own.
