I am sad to say that this, my labor of love, must come to a close for now, maybe permanently. I am going to keep the website up in hopes that you will continue to find some resources as you or someone you love faces life-limiting illness.
The work I have done with Quality of Life Care has been a very rewarding experience and has given me so many opportunities to help people and be blessed as well. I have missed writing articles for this site as well as other projects with which I was involved with QLC and will miss this whole venture greatly. I will pass this on to the right person or agency that will take excellent care to continue on with Quality of Life Care’s mission.
My focus has been evolving to my main passion in my life’s work, and that is guiding families through those last days with a loved one. I am working very hard right now getting my practice off the ground in this field I call death midwifery. I have another site: http://aGentleGuide.com where I educate about this. You can find me there for now. I am still available for palliative care consults. Pls email me at deanna(at)aGentleGuide(dot)com anytime as usual,¬† if you have any questions or need direction of some kind. If I can help you, I will.
Many blessings and peace to you all,
