Think Ahead: every life is a journey

The Irish Hospice Foundation encourages you to  Think Ahead

The purpose of Think Ahead is to help members of the public talk about and record their preferences in the event of emergency, serious illness or death.

The Think Ahead form aims to guide you in thinking about, discussing, and recording your preferences regarding all aspects of end of life. It encourages you to ensure that those closest to you are aware of these preferences so that, should a time come when you are unable to express them yourself, your wishes will be clear to those caring for you or managing your affairs.
