What is a Death Education?
Death education is having the knowledge, skills and understanding of how to gain access to and make informed decisions about end of life and post death care. A death educator provides emotional, spiritual and practical support to the dying person and/or their caregivers. A death educator may assist in planning and preparing for end of life. They can provide guidance in care coordination and resource finding. They may also assist in creating an enhanced dying experience by providing guidance during the "active dying" phase. A death educator can support you in creating lasting memories through legacy projects and provides a compassionate presence during the dying, death and grief process.

I can offer a compassionate presence as you heal through grief.
