A few ways a death doula can help you or a loved one:
I can help you develop an end of life plan regardless of your health status.
I will work in a non-clinical role to assist with tasks that you need addressed.
Life & Legacy
I can conduct a life review and help create a special legacy project.
I can provide respite care so care givers can get some much-needed rest.
I can provide education and guidance for your end of life necessities.
End-of-life doulas will work with a dying person, their loved ones, and paid caregivers at any point following a terminal diagnosis, and especially in the last months of life to support them emotionally, spiritually, and physically. The end-of-life (EOL) doula will also provide information to help the dying person and others make choices about, or understand the nature of, the dying process.

I spent most of my childhood in Oak Harbor, graduated high school in Ferndale and received my LPN and RN from Bellingham Technical College. While living in Bellingham I had the opportunity to work in long-term care as a floor nurse and eventually unit manager.
