We bring peace of mind
Doula services provided on a sliding scale.
peace in the papers
We offer consultation early on in the form of guidance with advance directive documents, information about estate documents, and planning for household settling up, advocacy for patient wishes for the end-of-life, family education and support.
We are also available for community or neighborhood events to inspire conversations about death and dying: “Loving, Dying and Letting Go” workshops, The Conversation Project workshops, Film and discussion events, Death over Dinner events.
peace in the planning
We welcome the opportunity to help you find comfort in the end of life. We bring peace of mind that your house is in order, empower your vision of how your last days will look, sound, smell and feel, and guidance on communicating how you would like your body to be cared for and returned to the earth.
Peace in bedside presence
These visits provide private support in your home, care home or hospital. The active-dying phase can be fragile for family, and we are here to support everyone for the best outcome. We aim to empower our families to care for the dying primarily by themselves, but will visit for the number of hours you feel you need, whether it's a couple of hours a day or around the clock. We listen, we educate, we hold hands, we attend to symptoms and we provide comfort. We serve as an adjunct to your hospice team, for those families or individuals who need or want additional bedside support.
peace in processing a loss
We provide grief rituals, referrals and reconnection.
A follow-up visit after death to reprocess the experience with family and address early grief, including referral to grief support resources in the community; or arranging a personal “grief ritual” to tell the story of the death and share memories in an intimate circle.
peaceful presence package
This package of services wraps our support into a beginning to end offering. It is an excellent way for family members to support a loved one from afar, or for you to be assured your family will be supported throughout the dying process:
Package includes a one-hour introductory consultation; two hours of document guidance, vigil planning or a written death plan; up to six hours of vigil support and one delivered meal service at a time of the family's choosing. Families may choose a meal when loved ones have come from far away for vigil; just after death; or immediately following a terminal diagnosis when gathered to discuss treatment/ end-of-life options. Also included is a follow-up visit after death to reprocess the experience and address early grief. $800
Price varies — The dying process can be taxing on all those who are present in support of a loved one. We offer chef-prepared meal support for individuals and groups at any time before, during or after a death. Please inquire about options.
