Here, you can submit your stories to share with other people who may be in a similar situation to you, or who may benefit from reading your advice or tips on how to plan ahead.

If you’re someone wanting to plan ahead, a family member or carer, please drop us a line with your experiences as many people will be reassured to know they’re not alone in having difficult conversations with their loved ones.

Please note that, prior to going live on the website, all stories will be moderated by the website manager. All stories will be published at the discretion of the website manager.
