Chippewa Valley End-of Life Doula

The support you need to feel prepared for death - for you or a loved one.

Death may be a natural part of life, but that doesn't make it any less overwhelming.

Are you ready to prepare for your death?

  • You want to put plans in place so that your loved ones know what to do in case of emergency, and when you cannot speak for yourself.
  • You want to understand the choices available to you for care during your terminal illness and end-of-life.
  • You want someone to emotionally and practically support you and/or your loved ones now and after your death.

Is a loved one dying and you need help?

  • You feel alone and overwhelmed by all the unknowns of death and dying.
  • You want to be sure you are able to meet the needs and final wishes of your loved one.
  • There are so many details and logistics to take care of - you need an end-of-life navigator to ensure everything you need is done.

This is not an easy path. You don't have to travel it alone.

Know what to expect during the end-of-life process.

Ensure family and friends have the information they need to support you and handle your affairs in case of emergency and after you die.

Enlist help to bring family and friends closer together during a difficult and stressful time.

Feel complete and supported as death approaches.

Dawn Briskey, End of Life / Death Doula

Serving Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls, WI and surrounding areas.

When you are approaching death, or supporting a loved one through dying, it can feel like you're all alone. I promise, you're in the right place to find the help you need.

I know what it means to experience the illness and death of a dear friend or family member and I know how hard it is to ask for help. You and your loved ones deserve love, compassion, respect and dignity during this time.

I am an End-of-Life Doula (also known as a Death Doula) with a NEDA EOL Doula Proficiency Badge. This badge signifies that I have met core comptencies in the end-of-life doula field.

I am also a mosaic artist, and even weave this into my work in end-of life when asked. As a highly engaged member of the Chippewa Valley in Wisconsin, including volunteer leadership in nonprofits in Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls and surrounding areas, I know how hard it can be hard to find local resources when you need them most.

As a Chippewa Falls End-of-Life (Death) Doula, I help local families have the support they need to navigate death & dying with confidence.
