Ways We Serve
Personalized Vigil Planning
Empowering individuals to express their end-of-life wishes and preferences through open and supportive conversations. We help create comprehensive care plans that align with personal values and beliefs.
Vigil planning allows you to first fully know and understand all the options available to you during the dying process. Nurses and doctors are too busy (and it is not their job) to stop and set a unique and sacred space for the patient. The family can be overwhelmed trying to manage efforts to cope with the impending death that they might not be aware of how they could bring many comforts to the dying person. For example, the positioning of the bed, scent in the room, music, touch, reading, family mementos, photos, bedside manner even down to lighting can be enhanced and tailored to the dying person's wishes.
Companionship & Emotional Support
Navigating the profound and complex emotions that arise during the end-of-life journey can be a solitary and overwhelming experience. Our doulas, equipped with deep understanding and compassion, not only offer a caring presence but also engage in genuine emotional connections. By being attuned to the intricate nuances of feelings, memories, and reflections that emerge, they provide comfort, companionship, and unwavering emotional support, ensuring that no one feels alone during this significant transition.
The twilight of life often illuminates moments of reflection, where individuals recognize and appreciate the profound impact they've had on their own journey and those of others. A doula serves as a compassionate guide, facilitating this introspection, helping navigate through barriers, and cherishing the milestones. Out of these profound reflections emerges the 'Life Review Project' – a tailored tribute that resonates with the distinct essence of the individual it represents. Such a project not only celebrates a life lived but also provides solace and understanding to loved ones during their time of grief.
Grief Support & Bereavement Counseling
In the aftermath of a loss, families often find solace through the comfort and support of friends, relatives, and the broader community. However, there's an inevitable moment when this external support fades, and life's usual rhythms begin to resume. It is during this transitional phase that our doulas re-enter, offering a compassionate presence and guidance. Through our meetings, we help families delve deeper into their grief, facilitating understanding and healing. This process can be further enhanced by crafting a personalized ritual or ceremony. Such ceremonies provide structured space for transitioning, offering a sequence for reflection, and aiding in the journey from one reality to another.
In the delicate moments of transition, emotions can run high and longstanding dynamics can come to the fore. Our role in family mediation goes beyond mere facilitation. We strive to create a safe and neutral space where each family member feels heard and validated. By understanding the unique dynamics of each family, we guide open dialogues, helping to navigate misunderstandings, reconcile differences, and foster deeper connections. In doing so, we ensure that during these challenging times, families unite in support and understanding rather than fracture under strain.
Advanced Care Planning
Navigating the intricacies of medical choices towards life's end can be overwhelming. Our role in advanced care planning is not just about assisting, but empowering. We strive to ensure individuals are fully informed about their options, understanding the implications of each decision. By fostering open dialogue and collaboration with healthcare professionals, we help individuals craft a care plan that truly resonates with their values and desires. In this way, we ensure that during pivotal medical moments, their wishes stand at the forefront, honored and executed with utmost respect.
Life Review Legacy Letters
Life is a rich tapestry of moments, relationships, and lessons. Our role in facilitating a life review is to help individuals sift through these memories, bringing clarity and introspection to their lived experiences. We provide a safe space for them to journey down memory lane, celebrate triumphs, acknowledge regrets, and draw wisdom from both. Out of this profound reflection emerges the legacy letter — a deeply personal note that encapsulates their essence, thoughts, and feelings. Through this, they have the opportunity to leave behind words of love, guidance, and closure, ensuring their voice and legacy resonate with loved ones for generations to come.
Ceremonies & Rituals
From the earliest epochs of humanity, ceremonies and rituals have been integral pillars, grounding our collective experiences and milestones. As our contemporary society rediscovers these ancient pathways, we recognize their profound capacity to encapsulate love, honor, and provide insight into grief. A doula is adept at weaving these traditional or bespoke ceremonies, ensuring they resonate with the spiritual, cultural, or personal inclinations of the departing and their family. Through these rituals, we offer not just a way to commemorate life but also a therapeutic means for loved ones to navigate their grief, find closure, and celebrate a life well-lived.
Reiki - Energy Healing
Reiki taps into the boundless universal life energy, a force magnified and deeply felt as one approaches life's final chapter. Bestowing Reiki upon someone during their concluding moments is a profound act of love and compassion. Rooted in kindness, Reiki is a gentle yet potent energy, intuitively directed towards healing and balance.
As one approaches life's final horizon, guided meditation serves as a beacon of solace, addressing not only physical discomforts but also offering profound emotional and spiritual sustenance. Meditation provides the dying with a transformative lens, harnessing the power of breath and visualization to regulate and soothe the nervous system. It's a gentle journey inward, allowing individuals to find peace, clarity, and a deeper connection to their inner selves during these pivotal moments.
For ages, the resonant tones of singing bowls have offered a holistic avenue to recalibrate the body's equilibrium. Their melodious vibrations usher in a serene clarity to the mind, acting as a balm for the soul. The deep, harmonious hum emitted by these bowls not only fosters profound tranquility but also alleviates emotional and psychological tensions. This unique and enduring sound is both rejuvenating and soothing, striking a balance that has enchanted humanity for centuries.
