Welcome to my end-of-life care and support network.
I am glad you're here and that you are choosing to explore exceptional end-of-life care. Whether you or a loved one is facing death or making decisions now for a time when you are, I am here for you every step of the way with informational Resources and a wide variety of caregiving services listed below that we can custom tailor together to suit your evolving needs.
During these unprecedented times when loved ones may be dying alone, many are finding the complexity of their grief incomprehensibly challenging. Please see our special Loss, Grief & Love during COVID-19 Resources. This is a small sampling of the rapidly growing movement for dealing with the waves of grief rolling through our communities when we can’t be physically present with each other.
Due to COVID-19, our first meeting, always free of charge and obligation, will be held by appointment via online, telephone or cell phone until it is possible to safely meet in-person. Preferably, our first meeting can be conducted with the option to see each other through video conferencing or in some rare cases when safety concerns can be met, in-person so that we meet face-to-face. If you, your caregivers or loved ones have any concerns, questions or seek inspiration about making the space sacred, suitable and sweet, we can potentially conduct a virtual tour. Let’s be creative during these destabilizing times.
I will conduct a short interview where the client resides to learn about your needs and desires, to tell you about my services and to answer any questions you have. This is intimate work by its nature. I am committed to my client’s dignity, ensuring they are as empowered as possible in making decisions concerning their care and that their wishes are upheld. I cultivate open communication, ease and grace with clients, their loved ones and caregivers. I endeavor to make sure everyone feels good, informed and empowered about care arrangements and that we agree on terms, hours and beginning strategies.
I provide a sliding scale in a concerted effort to be as financially accessible as possible. You decide where you slide. Any money you pay above the bottom end of the sliding scale goes into a scholarship fund for those who require financial assistance. If you or your loved ones have families, religious, social or other community groups and connections, many of my clients have had great success and some ease in sharing fundraising requests with these groups through using crowd funding platforms such as PayPal, GoFundMe and many more. I also accept some barter options. If you'd like more information, please contact me.
Hourly Rate: $150-$75/hour, sliding scale
Weekly Rate: Please contact me
Most of my services listed below are still available via phone, email and video conferencing when accessible. I am also available to coach you and your loved ones on providing services that are best offered in person such as healing touch, creating sacred space, connecting online with your own and other communities in the process of grieving and holding vigils, relaxation techniques, how to say goodbye to a loved one (the 5 things most people want to hear when they are facing their death) and other needed services. If you would like to talk about how I can serve you, please feel free to reach out.
