End of Life Care & Planning
for individuals, partners and families
Kriss has a profound sensitivity to a patient’s experience of death, grief and loss which has enabled them to proceed on their path with grace and peace. ~ Bobbie Tozier, RN, Hospice Nurse
Are you, or a loved one, dealing with a life-limiting illness?
I help individuals and families prepare for death, dying and grief
I have been involved in the end-of-life care field for over 25 years as a hospice medical social worker, an end-of-life care counselor and educator, deputy coroner, and scholar.
This is a time in life where you’ll need all the help you can get so please don’t hesitate to ask for it. Please note that no matter what diagnosis you might have, your process will be different from others. I’ve helped many people transition peacefully and with dignity while providing empathy and care to their loved ones and caregivers.
End-of-life care and planning includes:
Emotional support and consulting for the terminally ill person and his/her/their loved ones
Thorough psychosocial assessment and physical/safety assessment
Assisting in completion of end-of-life care paperwork including advance medical directives
Death planning including funeral/memorial services
Caregiver support and education regarding patient care and self care
