Your Touchstone Life Care Advance Care Plan will be accessible when it’s needed.
Peace, comfort, love and care, avoid unnecessary suffering. These things are vitally important in the final stage of life.
An Advance Care Plan is a document that states your wishes for end-of-life care.
Knowing what you would want reduces stress and conflict for your family and doctors. It means they can be sure that they’re acting in accordance with your wishes. A Touchstone Life Care Advance Care Plan is instantly retrievable 24/7.
Touchstone Life Care’s plans cannot be lost. They’re stored digitally and can be retrieved anywhere, anytime by doctors, emergency services, families and carers.
|Touchstone Life Care’s way||The traditional way|
Designed as a guided conversation so it’s easy to answer the questions.
Forms may be 20 pages long with unclear questions that prove unhelpful to your doctors and family.
Final version presents the most vital information (like whether you want to be resuscitated) on page 1 so your doctors can quickly see what you want.
Lengthy forms prove useless in an emergency as your doctors don’t have time to read page after page when they have to make split-second decisions about your care.
Digital plan that can be accessed & updated from anywhere, anytime by:
Paper copy that’s easily misplaced in an emergency or may never be found.
Most up-to-date version is available at all times.
Outdated copy may be left in your file and used to guide your care.
Instantly and easily shared with many of your trusted contacts.
Your family, GP, lawyer or carers may not know you have written a plan or be able to find it.
Legally accepted as a Common Law Advance Care Directive wherever you are in Australia.
May only apply in the state it was written in – useless if something happens to you when you’re interstate.
One source of truth – other important forms can be uploaded to Touchstone Life Care including a VAD (in WA) or an Advance Care Plan done with your GP.
Important documents kept in different places. Unclear which one matters most.
Kept securely online and complies with all privacy requirements.
Security is easily compromised.
Touchstone Life Care provides certainty and peace of mind at the end-of-life.
