Pilgrims nurses will share useful information, and help you think of ways you can start sensitive conversations. They can also answer any questions you or those close to you may have. We also find that during these sessions, some people find talking to others in a similar situation helpful.

Planning for the Future

When you have a life limiting illness, it is important to consider your preferences for future care and share these wishes with friends, family and the healthcare professionals involved. This process,
known as ‘Advance Care Planning’, helps you plan for end of life and supports you to live well in the moment.

Pilgrims Advance Care Planning session talks you through this, and shares some important documents to be aware of. It will also give you ideas for how to express your wishes.

Who’s it for: Patients and carers are welcome.

How many sessions are there: This is a single session lasting up to two hours.
