Our End of Life Care Doulas

  Support you in your right to choose an end-of-life that is meaningful to you,

 that is consistent with your belief system and values

 (ethnic, cultural, religious, spiritual, or personal)

 and assist you to put into

 place all your plans for your future as you wish.

 

 Provide you, your loved ones and your valued supports with information

 about the many end-of-life choices you have.  

 

 Assist you in knowing what is required in completing your legal documents

 so you can have your choices known and wishes followed. 

 

 Help you understand that in each Australian state or territory 

 there are different legal and statutory requirements for ‘paperwork’ and

 legal documents that empower who you choose to support you.

 

 Can be your liaison, your ‘interpreter’ with your medical and other support

 teams, including family and loved ones, advocating for, and guiding all involved,

 ensuring that you know all you need to. 

 

 Access the support services and other resources you may need or prefer. 

 Coordinate and attend with you, if you require,

 services and all aspects of care provision as needs change.

 

 Assist in the maintenance of an intimate and peaceful 'space’ during active

dying for everyone involved. Whether medical support is required or not and

whether in the home, hospice, hospital or residential facility. 

 

 Provide emotional and spiritual support, to all involved, before, during and

after death and facilitate access to specialists as required.
