Planning ahead workbooks
This booklet aims to provide a written resource that can be printed out for people who want to plan ahead either as part of a community group exercise or independently with pen and paper. There are 6 steps that can be printed and completed separately or provided as a complete booklet.
If you prefer the flexibility of working on the computer, which can help in making changes in the future or sending copies to family and friends, the individual can work through these in the My plans section of this website.
This booklet includes a brief overview of the six steps which are important to planning ahead and can help people identify the areas that are important to them at this time. Once completed it provides a record of important contacts and steps completed.
