Living Well Advocacy Service

The Living Well Advocacy Service supports people living in Wiltshire with any long term health condition to complete a Living Well Plan.


What is a Living Well Plan?

A Living Well Plan is a record of your hopes and preferences for the future. It allows you the opportunity to reflect on your past, identify things that are important to you today, whilst expressing your hopes and wishes for the future.

How will it help?

Completing a Living Well Plan can:

  • Encourage you to plan for the future
  • Give you confidence in what may happen in the future
  • Help others to understand you better
  • Help others who support you in making decisions, when you are unable to do so yourself

 


What have people said about their experience of completing a Living Well Plan?

‘It’s been a huge weight lifted from my shoulders’

‘It has helped us to get some clarity on difficult issues in a delicate, sensitive way’

‘Being able to tell your life story is very powerful; it validates everything you have done in your life and you can think to yourself – I’m alright!!’

‘I am less anxious since doing my Living Well Plan’
