A terminal diagnosis can set you on
a path unimaginable. We understand the powerful impact that open conversations around dying can have.
Would you like to create a death plan that reflects your values?
Are you looking to boost your support network if you want to die at home?
Are you hoping to leave your family with tools that foster resilience in their grief?
If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, then an End-of-Life Doula can help you.
Are you seeking new approaches to end of life planning for your failing loved one?
We can coach YOU, helping you
bring ideas and openness to the conversation.
Sometimes just being nudged in a new direction can make all the difference.
We'll talk about pre- and post-death choices.
Yes, you can give the gift of an End-of-Life Doula to your friends and family from afar.
If you've experienced the support
of a doula, then you understand
the deep, meaningful gift you can give someone you love who is too far away for you to support in person.
Call us, we'll create a unique plan for you and those you love.
"My father was given a terminal diagnosis of brain cancer.
Once I met with Christine I breathed a sigh of relief. She encouraged me to ask questions, be open, encourage dad to talk and, us to listen. She told us how important doing a “legacy project” could be for us and for dad, as it would give us something for him to remember and for us to talk about. She was right, it was the vehicle we needed – it helped him as much as it helped us. She provided a strength and foresight about the process that helped alleviate so much fear for us.
I have since started my own end of life planning and while I’m not in dire need right now, I’m so glad that Evening Star and others that are called to do this work are out there. We need them."
