End of Life Planning & Doula Services
Connecting threads of care
As nurses working in healthcare for many years, we have seen first-hand the agonizing decisions and experiences that many people endure at the end of life. We live in a culture that has medicalized death and created a belief that there is always something else that can be done and a ‘cure’ is in reach. We tend to deny the inevitable and remain fearful of what we do not understand. That denial often results in situations in which individuals have little or no control and are separated from what is most important to them in the last months, weeks and days of their lives.
Understand what is important
The end of life does not have to be that way. Our services extend beyond filling out forms for living wills and identifying health care proxies. We facilitate meaningful conversations that result in a deeper understanding of what may constitute a good quality of life for yourself and those you care about. Those discussions then form the basis for informed healthcare decision making and planning for life’s trajectory.
End of life support
When the time arises, we provide end of life support for you and loved ones. A doula helps you and your family define the care you want and need and fill the gap between medical and or hospice care. Doulas provide emotional, spiritual and non-medical support to you and your loved ones before during and after death. Our service creates a comforting death experience for you and those you care most about.
