Counselling Directory is a confidential service that encourages those in distress to seek help. The directory contains information on many different types of distress, as well as articles, news, and events. All counsellors listed on the site have provided qualifications and insurance cover or proof of membership with a professional body.
Many people in the earlier stages of dementia decide to make a record of their preferences in case they are unable to articulate these at some future point. This can be done through what is known as a ‘Living Will’, which consists of both an Advance Decision to refuse treatment and an Advance Statement of preferences and wishes. My Living Will provides free information about how to do this, and an option to create a Living Will for a small fee.
