At a month shy of 97, Diva was determined not to die. Then she caught the flu. Two deathcare professionals share their perspective and experiences in caring for her at end of life.
Through personal anecdotes, end-of-life caregivers Trisha Jauchler and Stefanie Elkins will honor and share their experience with Diva, and showcase the practical and profound interface in service to the dying, while juggling the competing needs and roles of medical personnel and family.
They will highlight the emotional, financial, medical, physical, and spiritual issues that arose and how a trusted and intimate professional relationship can develop organically through sharing the profound experience of death and grief. This session is for those that are looking for an authentic view of a deathcare professional's role and highlight the value of including an end-of-life specialist as part of advance care planning.
Trisha Jauchler, On Bright Wings, is a Certified Thanatologist, End of Life Doula, Certified Dementia Practitioner, and Grief Support Specialist. Stefanie Elkins, Be Present Care, is a Continuum of Care Coach & Consultant specializing in caregiving and end-of-life conversations, plans and programs.
