Dying matters...

As part of Dying Matters week 2018 and to promote conversations about future care planning the Education team from St Mary’s Hospice in Ulverston delivered an Advance Care Planning & Communication Skills training day specifically for the Legal Profession on Friday 18th May.

Krystal Garnett from Thomson Hayton Winkley (far left in photo) was one of the local Legal professionals who took time out to explore these important issues. Krystal says “ I was delighted to be invited to attend the training day to learn more about these important issues. Encouraging our clients to plan for their future care not only gives them the opportunity to think about what type of care or treatment they may or may not want should there come a time that they cannot express their preferences and wishes themselves, it also serves as a reminder for them to communicate these preferences and wishes to their friends or loved ones so that the right decisions can be made for them if or when the time comes. The message is simple, plan for the worst and hope for the best. These can be difficult issues to talk about, but it is important that we engage with them and it is particularly important for us legal professionals who deal with clients who may be elderly or seriously ill”.
