What’s your Plan A? Your Plan B? Your Contingency Plan?
Planning ahead starts with conversations. I help you explore your thoughts and feelings about the dying process. Together we look into what’s important to you in the final stages of your life.
Offspring are very grateful to know in advance what Mom or Dad really wants for their last years or months or days on earth. Spouses are grateful, too. And you can be relieved of that nagging worry about what happens if you become unable to speak for yourself.
Celebrating Your Life.
I also partner with you to celebrate your life! Maybe you want support to write about it, or to have a gathering of friends and family.
Making Choices Known.
You have some choices to make. Many Americans would prefer a natural ending, surrounded by loved ones, perhaps with death occurring at home.
I am a calming presence during a death vigil at the bedside, compassionate and knowledgeable when this very natural process is nearing its end.
Reviewing Final Options.
I support you in choosing a farewell or planning a funeral that fits your criteria, whether it’s planned in advance or not until after someone has died.
Deciding What to Keep.
Are you stumped trying to decide what to do with all the belongings that weren’t dispersed in the Will?
Planning a New Future.
