Why plan ahead?
What if an injury, illness or disability meant you needed support to make decisions? Who would you want to support you?

This section walks you through the process of planning for your future decision-making, and explains your options. This can include completing legal documents.
Sometimes people think they should start with the legal documents.
However by taking time to reflect on what is important to you, and by having conversations with those close to you, ensures that if you ultimately choose to complete legal documents, they will reflect what you really want.
