The right to be treated as a living human being until death. The right to maintain a sense of hopefulness however changing the focus may be. The right to express
Hello! My name is Gloria Reading. I am an end-of-life doula, an Advance Directive consultant, a community speaker on the topics of dying and grieving, and founder of Transforming the Journey.
When someone we love has been given a terminal diagnosis, everything changes – for everybody. Life becomes harder physically, emotionally and spiritually for the terminal person and those who love him/her.
This is when an end-of-life doula can be brought into your family to ease your burden and share your load. An EOL doula offers personal, laser-focused care and companionship to the terminal patient and meaningful support to the family.
An EOL doula welcomes and works in concert with Hospice when they are involved.
The End-of-Life doula is a highly-trained professional who is a trusted companion to the dying person and his/her loved ones.
You are not alone. We walk this journey together.
We encourage the involvement of Hospice and work collaboratively with them when they are involved. Our mission is to provide supportive companionship to the dying person and his/her family throughout the days and nights of terminal illness, sit vigil when the time comes, and provide laser-focused support.
I am passionate about writing and sharing resources to assist you with end-of-life issue. Please click here to read my blog.
