What does a "Death Doula" do?
Most of us elders have prepared a Will or Trust. It is probably stored with other important papers in a file on our computer or in a file drawer. We may have told our children where we want to be buried. But that is only the bare minimum.
We need to openly talk to our family, partner, friends about how we want to die, before it is too late.
Why is it so difficult to talk about our death? This will not be a deep philosophical inquiry. We will cover the basics of how to plan for our death.
What we need to do now, before the grim reaper or dementia gets us.
