We spoke to April Yasamee about the work of the Ageing Without Children group in Hastings (AWOC Hastings), which is part of the national campaigning,
My Future Care Handbook, 3rd edition (Sept 23)
Interactive workbook with the information and forms you need to help you plan your later life.
Over 70 A4 pages packed with information in order to make, record and share decisions about your future. A one-stop shop for all things related to later life and beyond, from compiling a bucket list to writing a Will, from creating a music play list to considering where you want to live and/or be cared for if you need support, and much, much more. Links provided to further online resources for those wishing to use the internet.
“I can’t recommend this strongly enough. Whether for an ageing relative or for your own information, education and action, it cuts through red tape to focus on decisions you might want made on your behalf if/when you can’t.”
Neville, bought 3 copies for family members
“This is absolutely what everyone needs.”
Jacqui, living with a life limiting illness
“This is a really great resource. Accessible and simple to follow with some important wins just by working through the book. We loved it.”
Take our free training to support people make plans for later life
Take advantage of our free training and ongoing support programme to help your clients / patients / members make plans for later life, future care and end of life. We will equip attendees to support people make an action plan and see it through, using the My Future Care Handbook as a source of information and structure for the conversation.
Organisations we work with include Carers Support Groups, Dementia Cafés, Town Sheds, Age UKs, Community Charities, Memory Assessment Services, Social Prescribers etc.
“The number of attendees was just right to create that safe and cohesive space where we felt able to share and discuss ideas and concerns. I thoroughly enjoyed the training and learnt a lot through the process.”
“I’ve gained so much from the sessions and am so excited to share this with others… truly inspirational.”
“It was so helpful and thought-provoking and a super accompaniment to the handbook!”
“The training is a supportive, enabling process in which people from any walk of life can participate without feeling de-skilled. The delivery was empowering, people felt safe and comfortable expressing their lack of experience and not knowing. The most important component is the ongoing support and access to continued learning and resource sharing.”
The My Future Care Buddy Service
Do you want to face later life with greater peace of mind, knowing that your wishes are understood and you have plans in place? Feeling confused and overwhelmed about where to start? The FREE My Future Care Buddy Service offers up to four phone or online chats with a trained volunteer Buddy who will help you work out what you need to do, and how to do it.
Health and social care staff pride themselves on delivering personalised care, but it is impossible to do that if they know nothing about the person. Creating a free, short and simple profile of your non-medical needs, preferences, likes and dislikes can help them deliver dignified and person-centred care.
