    Yes, it seems a few local areas are involved at the moment.
    I haven't had a direct approach on the subject. I'm assuming those on assisted medical care and dementia patients are probably being looked at, at present. It appeared via my local Health Board's post on NHS Western Isles, on my Facebook page.
    Got me thinking!

    I had to laugh. The first number on my contacts list is the undertaker!

    Likewise.
    After mum died I had to change it to my cousin Rosemarie.
    When mum was in hospital dying from pneumonia the docs said they would keep going for as long as she did but wouldn't resuscitate as it would be cruel in the circumstances. And they did, kept up the treatment until she finally "concked out" at 2.15 in the morning (I was there).

    My phone is password protected but has an 'emergency' contact on the unlock page. I don't really intend finding out if anyone will use it.
