Support for Serious Illness and End of Life

Providing Compassionate Support for Those Facing Serious Illness or End of Life

Throughout the journey of serious illness, aging, or end of life we provide non-medical companionship using the doula model of care. Our Serious Illness Companions and End-of-Life Doulas arrive with an open heart and beginner's mind. We meet families where they are with emotional, spiritual, and logistical support, complementing medical professionals to deliver holistic care.


Strong emotions frequently arise during serious illness and the later stages of life. We hold space for tough conversations.


We help people explore and seek solace in their spiritual beliefs and practices.

Find answers to commonly asked questions about PFY's work with families.

Do I really need extra support?

If you're experiencing unanswered questions, anxiety, or fatigue, or if you're a caregiver feeling overwhelmed, our services can provide the support you need. For anyone grappling with existential concerns, we're here to help. Please reach out to us.

How much does it cost?

We offer affordable services because we believe that everyone should have access to a dedicated serious illness companion and doula. We will do our best to work within your budget.

How do you screen and train your Serious Illness Companions and End-of-Life Doulas?

Our Serious Illness Companions and End-of-Life Doulas all undergo an industry-standard background check. Beyond our in-house training for Serious Illness Companionship, we require that they be trained by a reputable doula education organization, which is usually the University of Vermont or the International End of Life Doula Association (INELDA). Additionally, we maintain relationships with the Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) to offer palliative courses to our doulas.
