end of life doula

Maybe you have been diagnosed with a life limiting condition or are just wanting to plan for the future. As an end of life doula I can support you during this time. I see death and dying as a natural and normal part of our life cycle and try to help people to experience a better death. My role is unpredictable as it is totally tailored to you and the people important to you, but might include:

  • Helping you to put your affairs in order e.g. creating a Will, Lasting Powers of Attorneys, Advance Decisions, Goals and Wishes
  • Talking to you about your choice of a place to die or about the financial support you can get
  • Offering practical help, such as sitting with you or your dying person while you do errands
  • Attending appointments with you
  • Helping you to reconcile with friends or relatives who you wish you hadn’t fallen out, or lost touch, with
  • Speaking to you about your fears and wishes and aspirations
  • Helping you to have difficult conversations with friends or relatives about dying
  • Being the bridge between professionals and you and your family
  • Or simply just sitting with you or your ill relative, either in conversation or silence
  • Planning your funeral or memorial
  • And of course, if you want me to, I will accompany you, or the person important to you, as they die

I can do all or just some of these things with you, or maybe there is something different that you need.

But for me, the most important thing I do is support you to live until the very last breath of life
