What is an end of life consultant?
An End Of Life Consultant is someone with strong death literacy who supports both clients and the general community to grow in resilience, skills and knowledge around rights, options and choices for end of life. Ideally a practitioner will bring expertise, humour, calm, support, and comfort to those who are planning and/or preparing for advance wishes, advance planning, end of life options, death and dying, funerals, after-death body care, legacy and memorial projects, and grief support.
There are 7 non-medical end of life roles, and Dr Annetta Mallon – founder of Gentle Death Education and Planning (GDEP) – offers expert services in all 7 of these roles. You will also find supplementary services like cold plate rental, discreet personal house cleaning, and mentoring of new end of life consultants offered by Annetta listed here on the services pages.
