New Options in End-of-Life Care

by Cindy Kaufman

Colorado now has more options available for care at end of life than ever before. The vast array of options allow for more personal choice during the final days of life, as well as for funeral and body disposition. Every option available may not be right for you personally, but knowing and understanding your options will help you make the best choices for you and your loved ones.

Article in the Aurora Sentinel:

HOLDING SPACE: In a movement to embrace death, end-of-life doulas grow in popularity

"Kaufman and a small group of other doulas organized the collaborative because they saw a need for a common place for people working in the field. Somewhere they could connect services if they needed or just have a support system. The community has been steadily growing over the years, but Kaufman said she really saw an uptick about three years ago."
