Once you have created a Mycarematters* profile, you need to ensure that healthcare professionals are aware of its existence. This key / luggage fob has your unique Mycarematters code printed on it, enabling them to retrieve, print out and display your profile. In this way, everyone helping to care for you will be aware of your needs and preferences.
*Mycarematters is an online service where a person, or a carer / care home on their behalf, can upload the information they want healthcare professionals to know if they are admitted to hospital and are unable to communicate. So if a person has to undergo a stay in hospital and has created a Mycarematters profile in advance, their needs and preferences can be accessed the minute they arrive on the ward. Their Mycarematters printout can also be used to assist with care in a care home or in their own home.
