End of Life Counseling
When a person is terminally ill and has few resources, they may wait until their health deteriorates to the point of hospitalization before seeking services. Eugene and Springfield are served by several hospice programs, but only ours provides ongoing therapy at home. We combine the end of life doula model with mental health counseling, with special emphasis on low income and unhoused community members. Before our program, the area had only two such doulas, neither of whom were counselors.
Prioritized are individuals who may be socially isolated, low income, housing insecure, disengaged from the social service system, or who face other barriers to accessing hospice services
