I have been intrigued by death for as long as I can remember. The earlier we engage with our mortality, the better our death (and life!) can be. We have many more choices for end-of-life care and body disposition than most people are aware of. Death can be not only healing but personal, meaningful, and affordable.
I am a Home Funeral Guide (Certificate: Jerrigrace Lyon's Final Passages), a Death Educator, an End of Life Doula (Certificate: Deanna Cochran's School of Accompanying the Dying), a Life Legacy Facilitator (Certificate: Rachael Freed's Life Legacies), hospice volunteer with Hospice of Southern Maine, board member of the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Maine, facilitator of the Portland Death Café, and member of the National Home Funeral Alliance. My passion lies in education, preparation, alternative funeral and body disposition options. I love to nap.
It is possible to die a good death. The key to achieving a good death is preparation and communication.
You have options. Quite a few. More than you probably know. I can help.
