Helen commented on InMyHands

Such a fantastic initiative. Navigating difficult processes, procedures and forms is way down the list at any time in life. Being able to carefully consider the last part of your life in a simple and supported way, knowing the options and working through simple processes and procedures using simple tools, would allow you to continue to express life on your terms.

I imagine this would also remove a lot of the anxiety for all concerned, including yourself, your family, your friends and the medical world. You could focus your time and attention on living as well as possible to the end, rather than wasting time trying to work out how the system/bureaucracy works.

Wishing this project all the very best. I'm confident that Liz's successful service-centred/human-centred project experiences throughout her career, along with personal experiences of family loss, will deliver great outcomes for the community.
