As you know, AG is dedicated to supporting and improving the quality of life of terminally patients, their families and carers in the towns of Alameda, Fuente de Piedra, Humilladero and Mollina, and this is our main objective.
However, we are increasing aware that many people, particularly the ex-pat community in these towns, often feel alone, and isolated upon initial diagnosis of cancer, and many of their concerns are related to negotiating the Spanish system: knowing where to go for help, what help can be given etc. We have therefore decided to open an information point, the first Monday of every month (excluding holidays, commencing from 5th November 2012, from 10.00am to 1.00pm at our head office: Basement, Casa de la Cultura, Alameda. We will be able to offer practical advice, and information, to anyone from our communities at any stage of their cancer journey. We are also available on: 687089951. Please note, however, that we cannot give medical advice.
Thank you for supporing AG.

“Planificación Anticipada” (Forward Planning) means the right the patient has to express his own wishes about how he confronts the last moments of his life and to take decisions about himself and his assets.
“Planificación Anticipada” is a communicative, oral process which can be carried out in various ways by professionals. The patient decides how much involvement the professionals, family members or loved ones have.
These desires are written on the patient´s medical records, and one of the most important ways to register information regarding the patients health is to complete a Living Will or “Voluntad Vital Anticipada”
In Andalusía, the Living Will conforms to “The Living Will Declaration Law” (Ley de Declaracion de Voluntad Vital, Anticipada), and it is the channel by which a person can exercise his right to make decisions about health issues, which he may not be capable of doing in the future.
