Opportunites to make life easier

These are suggestions that will make your navigation through this time a little easier.  Each Doula comes with her unique set of skills and tools, but we all have the capacity to be most things we need to support you emotionally, spiritually and a little physically.  If you need lots of physical care, some are able to do that while others will help find a Personal Care Assistant or Registered Nurse or Palliative care team for you.  Each Doula as her own fee structure and skill base.  You negotiate directly with her your needs and establish what is best suited to your unique situation.  Daily payment is perfect both you and the Doula.  As you are aware, the dying process is a dynamic situation with changes often daily.  PayPal, direct debit, and some Doulas have card facilities.  We are always at the end of the email or phone to facilitate your needs.
