It is an honour to serve
I am following my heart and passion of being an End of Life Doula and Dementia Care Provider. It is an honour to be present for families. Whether your loved one is in a private home, assisted living, or hospital setting I will provide you and them with compassionate and nonjudgmental care and professional companionship.
The support and care that I can offer includes:
- Certified Dementia Care; as a provider I will adhere to the CDCP Code of Ethics
- Companionship to your loved one, enabling you to have peace of mind that they are not alone.
- Assisting families during the "end of life" transition by being present for them during the dying process. I will be there to hold their hand and companion them, talk with them, play music, or just listen as they let their dying journey unfold as it is meant to be. And when the time comes, sitting vigil with families and their loved one if I am welcomed.
I connect with and bring careful attention to the inner well-being of loved ones, family, friends at this delicate, emotional time.
I will walk down this path and help you and your family gently through and beyond this experience by being your advocate and your shoulder to lean on.
Certified Dementia Care Provider
If you are a caregiver of a loved one suffering from dementia, I am a Certified Dementia Care Provider and have a broad understanding of how your loved one needs to cared for. I also understand that you need time for yourself. I can support you and your loved one by spending time with them while you take that time to look after yourself and your life.
As an End of Life Doula, I will work with you and your family to provide a peace of mind at this emotional time. I will journey along side you, answering questions as they come up and advocate on your behalf. I will make this experience one of beautiful memories and love.
If you are a caregiver of a loved one suffering from a life threatening illness, or who just needs to have someone with them at all times, I understand that you need time for yourself. I can support you by being a companion to your loved one while you take that time to look after yourself and your life.
When you are supporting a loved one, or are yourself the person who is experiencing palliative care, I can help you sort through your paperwork making sure your documents are current and in order for your present situation.
I offer 30 minutes of free consultation, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me to discuss how I may serve you and for pricing. warm regards, Shelley
A note to my clients and their families,

Through my own life's experiences, education, training and volunteer work, I feel completely comfortable working with families and their loved ones at this stage in their life. I offer a voice for the dying and help normalize conversations around the dying experience.
