Advance Care Plans are not
all the same...

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.

How we are different

Touchstone Life Care’s wayThe 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:

  • QR code
  • Touchstone Life Care app
  • Inclusion in My Health Record
  • Print out of plan or QR code.

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Outdated copy may be left in your file and used to guide your care.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.

only 17% of people with dementia have appointed a substitute decision maker.

Touchstone Life Care provides certainty and peace of mind at the end-of-life.

Why are Advance Care Plans needed?

Dr Merran Cooper,
the brains behind Digital Care Plans

Touchstone Life Care’s Founder, Dr Merran Cooper, is on a mission to improve the system and culture for people at the end of their life.

“So many people deny themselves a good death by not addressing it soon enough, if at all. They deprive themselves of some of the most loving intimate forgiving and healing conversations. Our medical systems, invasive technologies and some treatment regimens often deny these things to our dying patients too, even if that is not the intention.”
