Project Description

After retiring in 2017 from Yale University where I had worked within the School of Public Health for 17 years, my focus began to shift from work to service. I began to explore the thresholds of spirituality and the end of life experience. I was drawn to the end of life time and asked how I could be a companion to those who might be dying alone. I earned my certification as a Doulagivers® End of Life Doula in June of 2019, and now volunteer as a ‘loving whisperer’ at Connecticut Hospice, inpatient care, in Branford, CT. I sit with the dying as a companion for this part of their end of life journey. I am a compassionate and loving companion to the dying, offering the client and their loved ones non-medical, holistic support through the dying process, whether at home or in a facility, respecting the sacredness of the end of life.
