What is an End of Life Doula?
A doula helps the dying and their families by bringing deep meaning and great comfort to the care given at the end of life.
Death is usually met with resistance and fear. A doula builds relationships for what many see as one of the most difficult of times. As a doula, I will promote personalized dying journeys and nonjudgmental support while comfortably holding space, companioning and engaging in mindful conversation with clients and their loved ones.
As a certified End of Life Doula, I complement the care provided by family members, friends, palliative care and Hospice professionals. I have an innate capacity to care well for others, providing a nurturing, protective and calm presence through the dying journey. I have over 12 years of experience working with residents in a community home for the dying and have attended to many deaths on a personal level. To learn more about me and the services that I offer, please get in touch.
After our initial meeting, I will be there to provide information and support you and/or your loved one with professional, individualized, and continuous emotional, spiritual, and physical care that will greatly help aid in comfort for all.
Guidance - Here for You
As an End of Life Doula, I promise to offer unwavering support to you and your family before, during, and after the end of life process. I will stay in close contact in order to routinely check how you’re doing and offer any support needed.
From our first meeting, all the way through your final journey, I will take the time to get to know you, your concerns, and your needs. I will be available whenever needed, during your transition and after, to provide care for you and your family.
"Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”
“The outpouring of love and support we received from Holly at such a difficult time in our lives was immeasurable - she is a remarkable individual who’s simple acts of kindness meant so much to our family at a time when words weren’t enough.”
“Care and Comfort...Holly brought both to our family in the days and weeks leading up to and following our family's loss of our cherished mother. Holly's presence eased a very difficult time for us. Our mother was blessed with Holly's tender care.”
