Death is a life stage to be honored, witnessed, and requires a complex array of decisions and choices along the way. Having a guide through this process prepares and lifts burdens for those dying and loved ones.
My doula services vary based on individual need and circumstance. Our work together may include:
Facilitating conversations with loved ones and planning goals
Vetting hospice, senior living, and home care options
Creating projects such as annotated photo albums, video diaries, stories, and more
Carefully designing the environment in which you will spend your last moments
Reduced fees for those who need it
Limited pro bono cases
Advanced Care Planning
Part of the dying process is preparing and finalizing legal and other documents that make clear our wishes in a variety of circumstances and possibilities.
These decisions can be scary. Part of my work is to navigate these topics and help you come to the best arrangements for you. This may include:
Acting as a liaison between individuals to ensure all wishes are well established and understood among necessary parties
Developing accessible documents for power of attorney and others to have easy access to necessary information and action plans
Helping you decide who your support system will be and establishing those contacts
Completing all advanced care paperwork, including a POLST and DNR if appropriate. We can also discuss and document any other wishes related to your care, including any dementia provisions
