Rosie commented on InMyHands

Hello Liz, I love the idea of capturing people's wishes through a range of mediums and different levels from Beginner to Expert that present varying options would make it playful yet useful.  I can see the appeal to younger people, who may have close virtual relationships due to social factors, beliefs or distance, but not have a nearby 'care companion' who could ensure their wishes were followed.   Reading your documentation I've realised there are many areas such as medical power of attorney and the ability of my family to follow my wishes that I haven't truly considered.  An app that could guide me through some key considerations based even on age would be immensely useful.  It would also help me work through at which stages I may want medical intervention and if so, can I have 'a' but not 'b'.  Technical but not overwhelming and a glossary perhaps.
I look forward to the next phase.
