What can you do when someone you love is dying?
Do you have an elderly parent who is dying, or perhaps a partner who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness? Where or who do you turn to? What can you do about their quality of life for whatever time you have left together? How do you want to manage those dreaded death discussions?
Being prepared may ease some of your and your loved one’s fears surrounding death. Doctors may be helpful with medical needs, what about the emotional and non-medical needs?
Susan B. Mercer, a trained end of life Doula, offers comprehensive solutions and advice about death and dialogues, to ease the fear and angst associated with death and dying. Caring for the non-medical needs of the dying person and their family members can bring a sense of understanding and relief to the dying process of life. The creation of a Legacy Project, attending to transition room preparedness, using visualizations, gathering knowledge of what directives are needed, and reviewing choices to be made prior to death can bring peace, ease, and serenity to all family members.
Living even while dying is a blessing you can help your loved one manage, with the tools, understanding, and kindness found in A Graceful Goodbye.
