Today with the Covid-19 we are confronted like never before with people passing. Every day we see the number going up. We cling to life. Life is precious.
People isolated and left to die without love ones on their side is very disturbing. Care for those who are about to pass over or perhaps not, is important.
Dead is part of life. It is a transition from one world to another world, a spiritual event rather than a medical.
Claire O'Berry is American, a Texan, married to Terry Mepham. They live in Western Australia.
She cared for her parents in the later part of their life. She and her husband became passionate with helping people with what they call " Dying your way".
An amazing journey of compassion and love.
Claire is a certified End of Life Doula and Patient Advocate.
