There are many professionals who can help you with planning ahead. You can ask your GP, district nurse, specialist nurse, social worker or your hospital doctor who is the best person to speak to about planning ahead.
It’s fine for you to raise the subject with one of these professionals. However, it might feel difficult to know how to begin. You may want to start the conversation with something like this:
‘I’ve been thinking about making plans for my future care, just in case something happens to me and I can’t make decisions for myself. I wonder whether you could help me. Or could you point me in the direction of someone who could help me explore what options I have and what I need to do?'
If you’re thinking about making a will, you should contact a solicitor.
