END OF LIFE advocacy,
support and resources.
All individuals have a right to die and grieve feeling fully supported.
A deathworker or end-of-life doula is a non-medical practitioner who guides individuals and their families through the dying process by way of presence, support, advocacy, education, and companionship. The deathworker is often part of a larger care team in place.
If you have an idea of something you’d like that I don’t offer, please reach out. I can either create a custom package including it or refer you to someone else who can provide it.
Nope! In fact, it is often best to sort out some of these tasks/things prior to Something Happening™️
Generally, the sooner the doula can be integrated into the care team, the more time can be spent getting to know the individual and family, prioritizing end of life needs, and creating sacred space and meaning for the individual and family.
It’s really dependent on what type of support you need and your current situation. Contact me for a (free) chat to see if we’re a good fit. Payment isn’t currently covered by benefits, and as such, is out-of-pocket. My fees are currently $100/hour.
If paying in full might be an issue, please mention that you’re interested in sliding scale payments.
MAiD is a legal choice in Canada for those who meet the eligibility criteria. I would be glad to help you navigate your MAiD process.
If you are requiring in-person services, there are several directories where you can begin your search – at DDNBC.ca, INELDA.org or NEDAlliance.org. Ensure the person you find has values and ethics that align with those of the client by scheduling an intake call.
