It is important to discuss your decision with the healthcare professionals who are involved in your care, so that they can support you in making and recording the decision that is right for you.
If you want to record this in a legally binding document you should plan to make an ADRT, but it is often best to have it recorded on a CPR decision form as well, so that healthcare professionals will recognise it easily. Alternatively, you could simply ask your healthcare professionals to record your decision on a CPR decision form.
That form must be immediately available if it is needed in an emergency. Keeping it in a prominent place in your home is important, but remember to take it with you when you go out for any reason. If you were to collapse whilst you are out, passers-by or ambulance clinicians would be unaware of a form in a pocket or handbag, so it is important that people who are with you know about your recorded wishes and where to find the form in an emergency.
