Introducing the My Future Care Buddy Service

      • Do you want to approach later life with greater peace of mind, knowing that you have thought through and written down your wishes, and you have plans in place?
      • Do you have a copy of the My Future Care Handbook and it is sitting, unopened, on the shelf?
      • Feeling confused and overwhelmed about where to start making plans for your future?

If you relate to any of the above, our FREE My Future Care Buddy Service is for you! Your trained Buddy will help you think about what’s important to you and understand the steps you need to take. There may be a face-to-face service in your area, or we offer up to four phone or online chats with a trained Buddy who will help you work out what you need to do, and how to do it.

You’ll use the My Future Care Handbook (buy your copy here) as a framework for the conversation. It’s packed with practical information, checklists, planning tools and sources of further guidance.

The first step will be to support you to prepare your action plan in line with your priorities. Then set a date for another session with your Buddy so you can discuss progress and agree next steps. Before you know it you’ll have completed those tasks you may have been putting off, or just hadn’t known where to start.

If you’d like to sign up or would just like some more information, please send us an email.

Thanks to grant funding we are able to offer the My Future Care Buddy Service FREE. Information about how to request a Buddy will be included in your Handbook, or email
