Forgot to add. The idea of having a digital platform to build these sources of info is really appealing. 

Many people make memory boxes and write letters for their loved ones. But I haven't seen anything yet that allows you to do it easily online. And so many of us have all our visual images on line now, rather than printed off in hard copy. 

Great idea. There are some ideas like this that we are using in the UK. 

There is a "This is Me" printable document that I sometimes use for patients with dementia or delirium. Quite commonly used in UK hospitals.

And more recently there has been a team working on "One Page Profiles" - including a gentleman called Max (#maxeolc) who designed a one page profile for his last few months and for his last few days.

Becky commented on Shifting from "fixing" to "being present"

I think gut feelings and intuition are so important in end of life care. Wonder how we teach clinicians to be more aware of those feelings?
