My Care Preferences

Recording your Care Preferences

Section 2 of the form

In this section of the Think Ahead form you can record your care preferences. For example:
  • How would you like to be cared for?
  • Would you like to make an advance healthcare directive regarding treatment that you do not wish to receive?
  • Are there cultural or religious preferences that you would like health care staff to consider in caring for you?
These are important questions and should be answered here so that you are given the best possible care and consideration by health care staff in a hospital or other care setting. Disclaimer; The Think Ahead Form was created by the Irish Hospice Foundation in line with current legislation. It was created in good faith as a service to the Irish public. Due to legislative changes versions prior to November 2016 may be out of date. If in doubt contact The Irish Hospice Foundation or your solicitor
