Cindy Bertrand Larson works as a New Decision Therapist, a cherished role that sees her helping the sick, aged and dying, along with their support networks. She also teaches a workshop for individuals recovering from drug and alcohol addiction and is a facilitator, keynote speaker, puppeteer and author.
Cindy Bertrand Larson is also an “End of Life Doula”, palliative care aid and hospice support for families facing challenges around the journey towards death.
Unaddressed personal and family issues may take priority at End of Life, hijacking the incredible opportunity to heal and grow past old wounds and worn out ways of communicating.
As an End of Life Doula, Cindy provides comforting care at home, hospital or hospice.
Decades as a registered care aid assisting people in facilities no matter what their physical condition, as well as countless courses about End of Life and Doula work qualifies Cindy to assist families during inevitable change.
A family member dying involves everyone, not just the person losing their life. Emotions can run high, and its possible that unresolved issues will surface. Seeing situations and people involved through “soft eyes” will allow transition to happen naturally without forced agenda’s and fear.
Having a neutral person present to sit vigil, filling in the gaps of time, with loving care, is a gift to everyone involved.
She has written End of Life Stories to reach out to readers in a state of pain, loss, grief and uncertainty. She hopes that her words find troubled individuals as those of a trusted friend might, and that they provide genuine comfort in a difficult time.
