Languages spoken: English


Hello! My name is Elisha, and I am here to offer my end of life services to all people one and all, without prejudice. I believe my journey to this destination was planned a long time ago, and was fully realized as I travelled through life, gained life experience, and began to ask myself some big questions about my life, namely:


1. What are the things that are truly important to me? and,

2. How it is that I can be of service to others for the remainder of my life?


Helping my Great Uncle very closely over the last 8 years concreted in me how important companionship and connection are to the elderly, which prompted me to start my own personal companionship business to work specifically with the elderly. It was during this time that I stepped into the role of Enduring Power of Attorney and next of kin for him. During this time, I served as his companion, his voice, his eyes, and his ears, and worked with other services in the community to assist him in whatever ways he required to ensure he lived life on his terms. This included obtaining and helping him to complete legal forms i.e. Enduring Power of Attorney, Will, Advanced Health Directive, forms for a variety of services, organizing and taking him to appointments, seeking out information and services he enquired about, and working alongside employees within the Health Industry and Government Agencies to help organize and facilitate high level and sustainable living requirements, to support him in continuing to live in his home.


What I learned most from my Great Uncle though, is just how vital it is to simply “be there”. Be present. Be conscious. Be love. Listen. Connect. Comfort. Care. Provide and seek support for the needs that have been communicated. Provide choices. Support the choices made. Take action to ensure the choices made are fulfilled to meet their required level of need and completion. It was late in this journey with him that I heard the words, “End of Life Doula”, and I knew straight away that this was the next stage of my journey.


As a volunteer at a local palliative care house, I have also been present for many people weeks, days, and hours prior to their transition, and have been deeply touched by many souls. Allow me to be present, supportive, and available to you and your family in the ways you need, in any capacity that I can, with a heart that is all inclusive and full of unconditional love, compassion, understanding, and empathy, and with a mind that is holistically open to all possibilities and which seeks to understand and explore life and beyond. I offer my services to you at any point in time, from the time of diagnosis through to the time of transition and beyond. For you, your family, and any other loved ones.


Furthermore, it is important to have your end of life wishes planned, documented, and registered so that at any point from the time of diagnosis to when your transition time comes, your family and loved ones are aware of what is important to you before and after you transition. You do not need to be diagnosed or dying or of an elderly age to plan ahead. Planning and preparation for your transition and beyond can be done at any age and stage of life.


Life is beautiful. Death is a beautiful and memorable transition.


Allow me to walk by your side with you at any stage of your life with love, compassion, warmth, professionalism, and integrity.


I look forward to connecting with you.
