We transform the end-of-life experience, by empowering important conversations and subsequent purposeful choices in the end-of-life stage. We help individuals, aged and home care providers, planners and the health system by providing a digital solution that ensures an individual’s wishes for end of life care are captured and communicated.
We strive to positively impact the experience of everyone involved at the end-of-life – the individual, families, care providers and medical teams – by facilitating a guided conversation that digitally captures and shares a person’s choices …
for end-of-life care to those that matter, both legally and emotionally, making those choices easily retrievable anytime, anywhere.

“I began my medical training at Sydney University aged 50. That was 32 years after gaining entry to the degree straight out of school. I had the world’s longest gap year.
In those intervening years, I cared for my husband who died from acute leukaemia aged 24 and had a ‘good death’ despite a horrific illness and treatment regimen because we had had those important conversations about his care and everyone knew what he wanted.
Years later, whilst working as a doctor, I saw unnecessary suffering and conflict in families almost every day, from people not having an Advance Care Plan. I saw patients with advanced dementia and aspiration pneumonias treated with nil by mouth and a nasogastric feeding tube. Then they were put in restraints so they didn’t pull the tube out.
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.
My vision is for Touchstone Life Care to be the spark that ignites real change in individuals, doctors and the health system. That includes educating people about advance care planning and encouraging them to create, share and store their own advance care plans.
Advance care planning is about having the most important conversations of your life, and making the most important decisions of your life. It is about finding out what is most important to you and sharing that with those who are most important to you.
I know digital advance care planning will improve people’s deaths. But it will also transform lives and families and save millions of precious health dollars currently being spent on expensive interventions that people may not choose if they took time in advance to think about it.”
