Positive. Prepared. Professional.

Positive

As an organization, we recognize that death is one of the two transitions that every person on earth will make. Being death positive doesn't mean that death stops being sad. It doesn't mean that you don't feel the normal feelings that come at the end of life and after. Being death positive means we don't have to be afraid to think about it or talk about it. It means that we can understand more about it and be better prepared for it - emotionally, spiritually, legally, and in other ways. It means we can share our feelings and our experiences with others, and we can all grow and find meaning by doing so.

Prepared

We can't really be ready for death - our own or that of a loved one. But we believe that you can be prepared. There are a lot of things that need to be addressed: medical and legal questions, planning for the final hours, funerals and memorials, grief. Our organization offers two resources to help: for the public, we can guide you toward resources that will help individuals plan their own end of life and help families make the important decisions both before and after their loved one dies. For professionals, we maintain a directory and indexed referral system to help find important resources and specialists in all areas that pertain to death and dying services.

Professional

We believe every individual should be empowered to make their own decisions about what is best for them as they approach the end of life. And we hope that someday everyone will be equipped to do the emotional work that it takes to come to terms with dying and grief. But you shouldn't have to do everything yourself - especially when there are expert specialists. While we provide many resources on this site, we also recommend that those who are able engage the services of an end of life doula, an individual who brings a hands-on, personal touch, will help you understand your options, and will help make the entire experience more meaningful.
