End-of-Life Planning Consultations
Covid-19 is a stark reminder of the fragility of life. It has asked us to deeply consider notions of impermanence, and has forced us to face our mortality—all while physically distancing and sheltering in place. 


Engaging in conversations about death and dying, gathering information and options, and working on an end-of-life plan can help alleviate fears, worries, and anxieties brought to light as a result of this unprecedented pandemic.


In the spirit of caring for each other during times of crisis, The Lily House is offering end-of-life consultations, virtual and/or by phone, as an opportunity to engage with our mortality and to open our hearts and minds to the inevitability of dying.


Planning ahead for end-of-life has many benefits:
          creates peace of mind
          increases our knowledge of end-of-life options
          supports us in making informed end-of-life decisions
          reduces worries, fears, and anxieties associated with death and dying
          improves our end-of-life experience
          empowers us to live more fully in the here and now

During end-of-life consultations, we can help you:
          Create an advance care plan for your end-of-life wishes
          Develop a legacy project as a gift for your friends and family
          Conduct a life review to bring clarity to this moment in time

We can also provide information on:
          Hospice and Palliative Care
          Advance Directives
          Ethical Wills 
          MOLST Form (Massachusetts Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment)
          Medical Aid in Dying
          Voluntarily Stopping Eating and Drinking
          Active Dying Process
          Natural Burials
          Community-based After-death Care
          Home Funerals
          Other community resources


Consultations are provided at no cost, or by donation, and are facilitated by End-of-Life Doulas Dawn Walsh and Kim Adams, both members of the End-of-Life Doula Alliance.
