About the event

Having expereienced the sudden on-set of illness & subsequent death of a loved one who had not communicated any end-of-life wishes, I was motivated to create my own 'advance care plan.' I am here to encourage and support others to do the same. 

An advance care plan is a written record that includes your wishes, preferences, values and goals relevant to all your current and future medical care needs, including when we are close to death and after we have died. 

Hopefully our own death is a long way off, and still, it is wonderful to reflect on what makes our days meaningful, what brings us joy, and what our values and beliefs are. 

Your plan will be especially helpful if something unexpected suddenly happens or when you become very unwell, as you may not be able to express your wishes and thoughts at that time. Writing down our wishes now - whilst we are well and have the time and clarity of mind to do so - makes things easier for our family who may be asked to make urgent, essential decisions on our behalf. It brings a lot of peace to those who care about us, to know what our wishes and values truly are. 

An advanced care plan is a very personal document. This day retreat is not to provide answers, rather to offer a quiet and  safe space for you to contemplate what is important to YOU. When creating your plan with others, you get the benfit of new ideas and viewpoints, as well as support and connection. Perhaps you have already made a start on your plan - this day will help support and refocus your attention on progressing it a little further. 

This day retreat includes morning tea, a nourishing plant-based lunch, and an Advance Care Plan and Guide. 

Most likely you will not complete your plan in this one session - it is advisable in fact to discuss your initial thoughts with your whānau and GP / healthcare team and to take your time. Your plan can be updated an unlimited number of times.

Advance care planning is for everyone, and the best time to write one is NOW!
