Who Needs A Doula
Adult child living out of state who is worried about an elderly parent - I can help ease your worry by providing companionship, attending doctor appointments to ask the right questions, promoting a healthy lifestyle, providing resources for services, and updating you on mom or dad's physical, emotional and spiritual wellness. The goal is to give you peace of mind by knowing that your parent is living each day in the best way possible.
Person of any age who has received a terminal diagnosis - Everyone experiences this journey in their own way. My job is to gently guide you through the steps of planning, processing, and accepting this journey to ensure that your end of life wishes are known and met. The goal is to reduce as much stress as possible for you and your loved ones which may include being present and listening, providing education on the natural dying process, assistance with planning after death ceremonies, obituary or eulogy writing and guidance through the grief process.
Elderly person with no children - I can provide the companionship and support to you by helping you navigate the Medicare map to find the resources needed, attending doctor appointments, promoting a healthy lifestyle, reintroducing activities from the past, and finding new interests. My goal is to help you live each day in the best way possible.
Any person responsible for the care of a loved one who is feeling overwhelmed - Being a full-time caregiver to a loved one is an honorable, but sometimes stressful role. I can provide respite services which will allow you time for self-care, appointments, a walk, or anything else that you need to get done. The goal is to allow you time to care for yourself so that you can continue to give your loved one what they need.
An adult of any age who has not documented their end of life wishes - Every adult should have their Advance Directives completed and their wishes communicated to their loved ones. This is a gift we should give our loved ones. I can assist you in documenting your end of life wishes so that in case you are unable to speak your wishes in the future, your health care power of attorney will be able to advocate those wishes for you.
