Planning care in the future
There may be times in your life when you think about the consequences of becoming seriously ill or disabled.
This may be at a time of ill health or as a result of a life changing event. It may simply be because you are the sort of person who likes to plan ahead.
The NHS Planning your future care guide helps you to think about advance planning and your options so that you can make sure those who care for you know your wishes and preferences.

Carers Trust provides information and advice for people who provide unpaid care for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support. They have information about different types of conditions.
If you are already a carer, Carers Trust has information about dealing with changes in the condition of the person you are caring for which may affect your working life.
