Service Overview:

The "My Future, My Way" plan is designed to be a comprehensive, flexible tool for future planning, ensuring that your unique preferences and personal wishes are respected and followed at various stages of life and need. Here's an overview of how the plan can be shared, with whom, at what times, and why it's beneficial:

Who Can It Be Shared With?

  • Family Members: To ensure they are aware of your preferences, both for general well-being and for care decisions if you're unable to make those decisions yourself.

  • Healthcare Providers: Including doctors, nurses, and specialists, to inform them of your medical care preferences and any specific wishes you have regarding treatments or interventions.

  • Care Providers: Such as home care agencies or residential care homes, to make them aware of your daily preferences, likes, dislikes, and any specific needs you have for comfort and care.

  • Legal Representatives: To ensure that your legal and financial wishes are known and can be acted upon as necessary.

  • Hospitals: In emergency situations, having your plan accessible to hospital staff can ensure your care preferences are immediately known, reducing stress and confusion.

  • Friends and Extended Family: Sharing elements of your plan can help them understand your preferences for more personal interactions, including gifts, social gatherings, and support needs

 

At What Times Can It Be Shared?

  • Before a Care Need Arises: Sharing preferences with family and friends can ease the burden of decision-making later on.

  • Upon Diagnosis of a Health Condition: When you or a loved one is diagnosed with a condition that may affect future care needs.

  • When Care Needs Change: If your situation changes, it's crucial to update and share the plan to reflect new needs or wishes.

  • When Moving, Rightsizing or Downsizing: Ensures that any new living arrangement is set up in a way that reflects personal preferences and requirements, making the new space feel like home.

  • In Emergency Situations: Having the plan easily accessible to healthcare providers can ensure that your care preferences are respected in urgent situations.

  • End-of-Life: Documents preferences for end-of-life care, including any specific instructions for after passing, such as funeral arrangements and legacy wishes.

Why Is This Beneficial?

  • Ensures Wishes Are Honoured: Keeps you in control of your care, ensuring that your present and future wishes are respected.

  • Reduces Stress for You and Your Family: Knowing there's a plan in place can ease the emotional and logistical strain on you and your loved ones during challenging times.

  • Minimises Repetition of Information: Saves time and reduces frustration by providing a single, comprehensive source of your preferences and needs.

  • Improves Gift-Giving Experience: Sharing likes and dislikes can make gift-giving occasions more meaningful and less stressful for friends and family.

  • Ease the Moving Process: Having a pre-determined list of items to keep can simplify decisions during the moving process, making it smoother and less stressful. Reduces the emotional and physical burden of sorting through belongings.

  • Facilitates Better Care Coordination: When multiple providers are involved, having a shared plan ensures everyone is on the same page, leading to more cohesive and personalised care.

  • Maintains Personal Identity: Ensures that cherished items continue to be part of you or your loved one’s life, preserving personal history and identity.

  • Fosters Family Harmony: Minimises potential conflicts among family members over possessions by clearly documenting wishes.

  • End-of-Life Preferences: Documents preferences for end-of-life care, including any specific instructions for after passing, such as funeral arrangements and legacy wishes.

  • Promotes Peace of Mind: Knowing that your care preferences are documented and can be easily shared gives you and your loved ones confidence and tranquillity.

Incorporating the "My Future, My Way" plan into your planning ensures a personalised, respected, and stress-reduced journey through various care needs, while also enriching personal and family experiences along the way.
