Think Ahead Packs

Think Ahead for individuals

1 x Think Ahead

Think Ahead for Carers

Most people in Ireland will die in hospital, but will spend most of their last months in their own homes. For those living at home, family members/carers meet many of their care needs. Looking after someone approaching the end of life can affect family carers, who may find it difficult to think and plan for their loved one or feel unsure of how to start a conversation. We have specially curated a Think Ahead pack for carers with our Conversation over a Cuppa series to aid supportive conversations.

Pack includes:

2 x Think Ahead
2 x Advance Healthcare Directive
2 x Medical Summary Form
1 x @Conversations over a Cuppa’ series
1 x Copy of ‘Say Yes’

Think Ahead for Couples

Couples often play a critical role in decision making at the end of their partner’s life. You might have drawn up a will and managed some of your finances and just not got round to having an end-of-life conversation.

Talking together can help you discover new things about each other, and you may surprise each other with what you find out. If you can, make some time to talk with each other — whether at home or out somewhere together. Go through the Think Ahead Pack and fill in what is important to each of you and discuss with each other. Remember to review and discuss regularly.

Pack includes:

2 x Think Ahead
2 x Advance Healthcare Directive
2 x Medical Summary Form
1 x ‘Conversations over a Cuppa’ series
