Having an Advance Care Plan is really important, as is sharing it. TLC is easy to use and it is comforting knowing my loved ones know my choices and that doctors will listen them

Touchstone Life Care app was easy to use tool. It is pioneering End of Life Care. Thank you!
I really liked that I was able to make my Advance Care Directive at the time and location of my choosing. The online process guides you through what you value, and helps you identify what your preferences would be in certain health scenarios. These are serious things to think about, but the process is very supportive. And I felt a lot of peace of mind having this completed document at the end. I also like that it can be amended at any time, and that it is easy for Substitute Decision Makers to access, while at the same time protecting the privacy of my information.

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.”
