Fabulous Going Away Party & Funeral Planning
Funeral planning takes the burden of decision-making out of the hands of grieving friends and family, and ensures your funeral (if you choose to have one) will be appropriate and representative of your life and your wishes. Funeral planning can save a lot of additional expense, as well as reduce stress, so this is a popular planning option for clients.
A Fabulous Going-Away Party allow clients to celebrate their life with important people by way of a completely tailored celebration of life event held before the end of life.
Funerals can also be more traditional in approach, taking place after death (at any time, there is no rush), DIY at home, tailored to your style, or our 'bookend' option, which allows for two events. The first is a celebration of your life that you attend, followed by another gathering after your death.
House Decluttering & Cleaning
Decluttering and/or cleaning a home to ready it for sale so that a person can move to a retirement or nursing facility, or after a death, can be incredibly stressful for someone close to the situation. We can arrange charity donations for pickup, boxing of items for family and friends to collect, assist with sorting and arranging household contents, and rubbish removal*.
Home decluttering and cleaning are services that Gentle Death Events and Planning are happy to offer clients, and are not reliant upon engaging Dr Annetta Mallon as an End of Life Doula.
*Price subject to tailoring, depending upon individual
case and circumstance
$110 per hour
$150 per 90 minute session
