Financial Support for End of Life Care and Options
Financial burden should never be an obstacle to accessing the care and options we all need to create an Empowered End of Life Experience. If you or a loved one require financial assistance to ensure optimal End of Life Care or to access your End of Life Options, please reach out directly to apply for support.

End of Life Options Group Support

Medical Aid in Dying Bereavement Group
We offer trauma-informed spiritual and emotional grief support and education for those who’ve lost a loved one via Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD). This support includes a peer support group co-facilitated by Grief and MAiD specialists with experience supporting patients and families through the MAiD process and bereavement journey. We also provide access to additional resources including in-person workshops, supportive rituals and individual grief care.

Medical Aid in Dying Preparation Group
Our foundation provides education and exploration regarding common themes and experiences for patients and their loved ones considering Medical Aid in Dying, including: How to know when it’s time? What to consider at the time of ingestion? How to communicate with loved ones about the choice to pursue MAiD? How to create rituals, legacy and support for patients and loved ones throughout the End of Life and MAiD journeys?

Donate to the Foundation

We depend on the donations to provide financial aid and free Medical Aid in Dying Support Groups to those in need. Please consider supporting our movement with a donation.

Bob and Elizabeth are just very gentle souls. There was no pressure and shared with my wife Rachel and I the many options you have to consider. It felt just like someone putting their arms around you.

[Dr. Bill Parker]

For us as a family, Bob and Elizabeth gave us the tranquility and support that we needed at that moment. It made a total difference in the way my Dad passed away. It allowed me to be the daughter and not a nurse.
