Being a patient can be tough. Suddenly you are thrust into a role controlled by others and it can be hard to find the right information with so much of it out there.

What matters to you?
Watch this short film produced by the EOLC Partners Think Tank during 2020 to help you get talking about what matters to you.
Asking ourselves 'What matters to me?' helps us plan for the future. Our answers could be about family, jobs, holidays, education, where we live, what we eat, what we love to do... the list is long.
Knowing what matters can play a huge part in helping to make our lives enjoyable and worthwhile. 'What matters to me?' is still important at the very end of our lives, too. For most of us that's a long time away. But it's never too early to talk to our family and friends about 'What matters'.
Sharing with others helps to make sure that any help or care we might need in the future, when we’re ill or facing difficulties, matches up with our preferences. It can help our family and friends to support us in our choices.
