Our end of life care helps terminally ill patients and their family members in tough times.
I can’t speak highly enough of Melissa Wood and her dedication to her clients. A friend of mine had relocated to San Antonio to be near her sister as her health declined drastically. However, her sister had no experience with finding proper care for someone so ill, and my friend asked me for help. I found Melissa’s contact information in the National End-of-Life Doula Alliance directory, and she responded to my call quickly. Melissa helped my friend get set up for hospice care and found a new health care facility that could provide my friend with the appropriate care during her last days. She was a relentless advocate for my friend, constantly following up with hospice and the health care facilities to make sure my friend’s needs and wishes were addressed.
My friend’s condition had impacted her memory, and Melissa calmly answered her questions, no matter how many times my friend asked the same question. My friend told me several times how happy she was with all of Melissa’s efforts. Melissa also helped explain the dying process to my friend’s sister and me and clearly answered all of our questions too.
When my friend was in the very final stages of her life, Melissa even spent a night watching over her, so that her sister could get some well-needed rest. All of Melissa’s efforts resulted in my friend being able to pass comfortably and peacefully. Melissa far exceeded my expectations with this process, and I highly recommend her to anyone needing assistance with death.
Melissa was such an immense helping during the last few months of my wife’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis. She was able to stay with my wife when I had to run errands and she had a great way of keeping my wife calm when she would become agitated. I’m so glad that she was there… she helped prepared me for my wife’s death with a very calm presence. If you have a loved one who is terminal, I can’t recommend her services enough. She has a very calm and patient presence. She’s able to bring a soothing energy to an otherwise chaotic situation and was able to help both of us. I highly recommend her.
