RESPITE CARE

Respite care provides temporary relief for a primary caregiver, enabling you to take a much-needed break from the demands of caregiving.  Caregiving, is a demanding job and no one is equipped to do it alone. That’s why respite care is so important. It can provide you with a short but vital break and help to relieve stress, restore your energy, and promote balance in your life.

 

ENVIRONMENT

We help you to be comfortable where you are staying -where you feel the most comfortable and relaxed, in privacy or around family and friends.  As an example we help provide and find music, communicate with your family to bring pictures or other personal effects.

 

POST DEATH SUPPORT

When a person dies, there are so many details to attend to. This can be overwhelming for those left to mourn, therefore your End of Life Doula will continue to offer practical and emotional support to the family immediately after their loved one transitions, in the days that follow and beyond for as long as they need us.

THE BEDSIDE VIGIL -  Fee based on requirements 

This is the time when a person moves into the active dying phase. Death may occur within hours, days or weeks.  The vigil may be held at home, the hospital, hospice or any other care facility. As your End of Life Doula, we are your dedicated nurturing presence to help guide you through this natural process.  We help bridge the time for when the medical team must shift their focus to other patients in their care.
