LPN & End of Life Doula
Preferred Nursing by Heidi Simon
Licensed Practical Nurse & Certified End of Life Doula
I've been in the human service field for over 30 years. My passion for helping others inspired me to further my education and become a licensed practical nurse in 2012. Most recently, I have been working in an assisted living and it is here that I have discovered my passion for helping seniors and their families navigate through health challenges including the end of life experience.
On a personal note, I too have experienced caring for and losing loved ones including both my parents. I know first-hand how devastating a challenging diagnosis can be to a patient and their family. However, I have never felt a greater honor given to me from families that have allowed me to be a part of such a difficult and intimate time. As a Nurse and a Certified End of Life Doula I dedicate my service not only to the patient, but also to their family members and friends who may need help processing and dealing with a challenging diagnosis.
I will continue to make a difference in the lives of those I serve through all their stages of healthcare.
