Welcome to East End Doula Care - Home of the Legacy Doula

As and End of Life Doula and Legacy Creator, I bring many services to this last milestone. The second half of our lives can be the most important and fulfilling time in our journey. Aging is inevitable for all of us. It should be filled with memories of a life well loved and well lived. A treasured time that can be filled with meaning and purpose. I am fortunate in that I believe whether you are near the End of Life or not, completing and leaving a documented legacy for your friends and family is key in helping life come full circle. We are all the ancestor, today. How validating it would be to have a piece of our great grandparents story. Be the One!

With a little preparation and thoughtful planning, there are many ways to be mindful in leaving a piece of history to the future generations you will never know. Read below to learn more about the services I offer as an End of Life Doula, and then take a minute to explore the wide range of workshops and events that are available to help you leave your mark in history. Be mindful in doing this now, these powerful life changing workshops are for the vibrant and healthy over fifty person who knows the importance of educating our future families by leaving our knowledge and experiences behind.

What is an End of Life Guide?

An End of Life Guide or End of Life Doula are one in the same. 

Doulas offer Non-Medical Guidance and Support both Physically, Emotionally and Spiritually. We are Givers and Advocates who are there for terminally ill patients and their families. 

We can be with you from the onset of a diagnosis all the way through transition offering education, resources and friendship when you need it most.

*

The key right now is to help bring balance into an unbalanced time in your life.

We're all unique having different wants, needs and desires. End of Life should be no different. 

During this time we can plan and map out how your story should unfold, and on your terms. 


We do our best to make your timeline beautiful, peaceful and complete. 

Most of all, we are there for you. We help with legacy projects, making amends with family or just to hold your hand. We help you walk your journey all the way through.

 Our "FAQ's" page will give you a picture of what an End of Life Guide can offer you.

Another very important piece of East End Doula Care's Services is our Elder Care Assistance. Our Elder Care population has sky rocketed and will continue to do so with our lives lasting well into the hundreds. Please see all that encompasses this milestone

 and how we can help fill in the gap at exactly the right time. See our Advanced Directive Tab as well. Buttoning up all your loose ends is pivotal to ensure your wishes are known. 

As you are visiting the tabs above, please see our Workshops to see why it is so important to leave a piece of yourself in the world and how simply you can do this. I work on this Legacy Work with clients not only during end of life, but so much earlier. We all have the stories and the importance of leaving them on paper while you are younger and vibrant. We are living today in a digital and disconnected world. Everyone of us has opportunity NOW while the memories are clear and concise to do our part and "Be the One". We all have the power today to help shape our future families.

Our Support in 3 Phases

Phase 1 -


There is a terminal diagnosis. Everyone is in shock. You call and ask us to visit. We spend time getting to know you and assess what you need where you are right now. We help make a plan for this last chapter of life. We help explore past and present, listen to stories and absorb everything, from the beginning to today. Companionship, listening and being in-tune are key. We incorporate creative legacies, video, audio, letters, communication with loved ones, making amends, memorable projects and more. The journey is yours. We bring together all your puzzle pieces, complete unfinished important paperwork and organize all loose ends so nothing feels undone. We'll explore, create and learn together to celebrate the story of you.

Phase 2

Phase 2 - 


Once actively in transition, we assist in all the non-medical avenues. We bring focus and direction alleviating fear for both the patient and their family. We prepare an End of Life Vigil designed by all of us. We give respite care to family members. We use techniques such as music, guided visualizations, reading, rituals, scents and tenderness to make the surroundings a serene and spiritual place. We help fill this sacred space with Love, Compassion and Closure. It can be a space for unlimited family members, or just your Doula if there is no family to be there. You will have a hand to hold during this time. It is an honor for us to get to share in your experience and we work to ensure this all flows with the grace and dignity we all so deserve.

The benefits of bringing in an End of Life Doula:


a. Everyone has an increased sense of control through planning. We educate you and take the anxiety away. Be sure to ask us about our VIP Organization Project. Whether Doula Care or Elder Care, Our unique project will combine all paperwork, accounts, passwords, phone numbers and more into one secure place. No worries finding anything again! 


b. Better symptom management. A Doula knows what to look for and can teach you little things to help make the patient feel more comfortable and to help this time feel more managed. 


c. We provide downtime for caregivers or family members. The Pilot always says,"Put your mask on first". If you don't stop, breathe and walk away, you are no good to yourself or anyone else around you. Take a minute, we are there for you.


 d. The experience of losing someone you love is like no other. We listen and reprocess the experience, both good and bad. We provide you with alternative resources, give you the support you need and stay on, depending on your needs. Most of all we are a presence to guide, support and help with anything you need.

"When most of us think about death, we feel deep sadness and fear of the unknown. By fearing death, we miss the countless opportunities in our everyday life to open our hearts and minds, and for savoring this sacred and natural milestone.

Release your fear and live for this moment, this is all we really have."  -  Susan Capurso

Facts

Years ago we weren't so busy, far apart or unconnected as we are today. It used to be a natural process to pass away at home surrounded by family. Times have changed. Saying goodbye in a cold hospital room with bells, whistles, machines and strangers, is not a loving or natural way. We can choose. With a plan in place you can leave the world with the love and closeness 

of family and friends surrounding you.

Our Senior population is larger than ever. Did you know...

FACT 

​There are 75 Million Baby Boomers over the age of 65 and 20% of them do not have children 

FACT

9 out of 10 people want to be kept at home if they become terminally ill

FACT

The # 1 concern of a person dying is not becoming a burden to their family members

What our clients are saying

When both of my parents were gravely ill, the only thing I was sure of was that I needed help. East End Doula Care gave our family the guidance and support that we needed so badly. Susan's professionalism and care made the passing of both my parents an organized, caring and loving event.
