Lynn has been the end of life Doula for my 97 year old grandma for the past year. We’re very grateful to Lynn for the love and care she gave grandma over this time to help her prepare for her departure. Discussing end of life issues was much easier with Lynn’s guidance and it allowed the family to focus on caring for grandma rather than having to deal with administrative tasks. During the final days of grandmas life, Lynn’s experience as a registered nurse was incredibly helpful because the aged care home staff were not adequately relieving the pain and suffering sufficiently. Lynn was able to make recommendations so that the staff caring for grandma could request better medical intervention to ease her suffering. Lynn helped us understand the stages of death as they unfolded in front of us and this made the experience less anxious and more peaceful for grandma. We’re now preparing for a simple family service to scatter grandmas ashes on the beach. There was no need for an expensive funeral service because we knew grandma did not want that type of farewell thanks to Lynn’s counselling with grandma while she was still able to discuss these ideas. We highly recommend Lynn as and end of life Doula and now realise how important it is to receive this guidance. Thank you Lynn!

We had never heard of an end-of-life doula until Lynn was recommended to us. We are both elderly, and we’re aware that making decisions in the midst of grief and loss can be overwhelming and difficult, so we wanted to gather as much information as we could about the end-of-life before it actually happened! We’ve had Lynn gently guiding us while we’re in a position to think calmly about what we do and don’t want. She has been so very kind, thoughtful, respectful and helpful and we are both so grateful to have found her.
