"Doula in the Den" is a collaboration between With Dignity Death Doula & The Rabbit's Den.
Art can be beneficial for people working through grief due to a recent death or new diagnosis. Art can also be a positive outlet for seniors as it can help with dexterity and cognitive function. I also offer support through art for people in their sobriety journey - no judgement here. This is a safe space for you.
All art workshops, sessions and lessons are offered to the community "by donation".
Please note I can offer these 1-on-1 support services either virtually or in person
Art can help us to emotionally navigate the journey of battling an illness or injury, to process complicated emotions in times of difficulty and challenging events. Therapeutic art sessions in hospice or palliative care helps the bereaved family to form 'continuing bonds' with the patient even after death through the process of creating tangible artwork that lasts after death, thereby assisting the family in coping with loss and bereavement.
A therapeutic art environment creates a calming effect and can help to manage behaviour. Certain types of art can help improve dexterity and motor skills. Seniors who live with chronic pain can find themselves depressed and discouraged. Therapeutic art can relieve that stress and help with pain management.
If you have them you can use them, BUT I DO BRING ALL PAINTS, BRUSHES AND CANVASES FOR YOU & I CLEAN UP WHEN WE ARE DONE.
No - anyone at any time can work with a Death Doula.
Although we do work with those who are at the end of their life or have a terminal diagnosis, we can also help you make decisions for end-of-life care at any stage of your life. We can also help you create personal directives, and even support you while you work through a recent death of a loved person or pet.
Thank you for your time.
Contact me if you need support, have any questions, or want to know how I can be of service to you.
Some support services are available through virtual meetings.
