To be or not taboo – Planning for the future

Unless you’re James Bond, ‘you only die once’. Planning for the future is a conversation we all need to have.

It is better to meet the end with a plan, so if you are one of the many who have not yet planned for death or incapacitation, then now is the time to start.

Your guide to advance care planning

Governments around Australia could take a leaf out of Western Australia’s Advance Care Planning education initiative.

Only seven per cent of West Australians adequately plan for their death.

This campaign aims to educate people to start the conversation early about planning for the late stage-of-life.

This includes:

  • making a will
  • being an informed health user
  • making your organ and tissue donation decisions known
  • understanding palliative care
  • ensuring Enduring Powers of Attorney and Guardianship and Advance Health Directives are in place.

The message of the campaign is relevant for all ages, as you never know what is around the corner.
