Dying With Dignity Canada
Dear Barbara Moore,

We have an exciting update for you!

The team at Dying With Dignity Canada has been hard at work refreshing our Advance Care Planning (ACP) Kit, and it is now available for download.

This new and improved toolkit invites you to think about your end of life – including your values, beliefs and preferences – and is intended to encourage communication between you, your loved ones and your health care providers. It is a way to document your wishes and identify someone that can make decisions on your behalf, if you cannot advocate for yourself.

What’s different?
We’ve streamlined our toolkit to make it more user-friendly and simpler to navigate. Whether you live in British Columbia, Newfoundland, or anywhere in between, our Advance Care Planning Kit has the information you need to get started.


Once you’ve read through the toolkit, download the form specific to your province or territory to create an Advance Directive and appoint a Substitute Decision-Maker.*

Don’t leave your end-of-life care to chance. Take control and make sure your wishes are documented and that your loved ones understand your wishes by downloading and completing an Advance Care Plan.

Download Here
* The name of the document and the term used for a Substitute Decision-Maker are different depending on the province or territory in which you live. Everything you need to know can be found within DWDC’s Advance Care Planning Kit.

DWDC's Advance Care Planning Kit is available free of charge, thanks to a generous donation from The Slaight Family Foundation.

My Story

I struggle to ‘catch my breath,’ every day. I was diagnosed with COPD at age of 60 and CatchYourBreath60 was born.

I am a female with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), I had 2 Sudden Cardiac Arrests in 2016 I now suffer from Heart Failure.

Uncontrolled shortness of breath lead to heart failure and pulmonary hypertension. I had an Internal Cardiac Defibrillator (ICD) implanted.

It cost me my livelihood and my financial freedom.

I suffer with severe breathlessness having a condition known as Phrenic Nerve Palsy. The phrenic nerve supplies the signals to the diaphragm. Somewhere the nerve forks into two to supply signals to both left and right side diaphragm muscles. Unfortunately for me the left side has been damaged, possibly by a virus. The decrease in my ability to exchange oxygen in my lungs means that exertion of any kind has a cost. Simple every day needs cause fatigue and pressure on other organs. During these difficult times with the pandemic the need to wear a mask is torture, however with the risk of being infected I cannot afford not to wear a mask.
Hi Barbara, I just read your very interesting 3 part story, is there going to be a 4th?

Hi Barbara, I just want to confirm tonight's meeting, the invite says 7 but your reminder says 8? I'm guessing 7 is correct?
have you seen this; I thought it might be helpful https://www.today.com/health/coronavirus-breathing-technique-may-help-covid-19-patients-breathe-better-t177870?fbclid=IwAR0KpH4- 5xGvU4bCJ5irpfHv1lmuo9KzqFZH-1V_SR-0-f2dMZYxXAAngyE
A little humor for Tea Time! This is my new skill learned during quarantine!
Now is the perfect time to practice meditation!
Just finished this one
Question please. If one person in a home catches the Corona Virus, should the entire home be quarentened together? Also, if one family member has COPD, how do you handle this? This is actually a question from my daughter. Thanks for your input.
Glad to hear you had a good time at Rehab yesterday. Great bunch of people there.
Hello ‘Catch Your Breath 60’. Also Barbara. I do not know if I am a member of your group, or a visitor that was able to make contact recently; so I am asking, if my making contact has automatically given me membership, or whether someone invited me to do so, which I don’t recall! My memory has always been excellent, but that’s just my opinion! Hopefully, that is still the case; unless you Barbara state otherwise! What does the ‘60’ represent in the group’s name? I would like to catch my breath, but it’s too fast for me. What are the rules (if any)? I expect you may reply- no religion, or politics: they are my two most interesting subjects; however, I can readily agree with not mentioning them if they are forbidden. Well, I do not want to take up any more space, so I’ll just say ‘Hope you all can catch your breaths for 2020, and not let them go😍
