HOME CARE

The primary role of our home care services is to provide emotional and spiritual companionship. Drawing from evidence-based research and experience, our home care services are created to offer guidance in the understanding of what happens to the body physically and which emotional patterns are common during moments of transition such as birth, spiritual exploration, end-of-life, and death.
Summer Diegel is a full-spectrum doula with an educational background in education, theology, and grief. They offer home care as a way to facilitate connection to the emotion and embodied responses that arise during moments of transition by planning for these moments through preparing soothing techniques, on-call care, and offering guidance or education surrounding the choices and techniques available to respond to common behaviors or changes. 

SERVICES

PERSONAL CARE


Your doula may invite each person to take part in day-to-day care within periods of transition such as birth, illness/disability, and death. When we deepen our transitions (our small moments, our big moments, sometimes-easily-brushed-away moments) we make a choice to invest strategically into them. I believe that by doing this, over time we can build authentic faith and joy. In this way, I hope to join alongside the youth ministry that is already happening each day. Personal care services are developed uniquely for each client. If you are interested in hiring Summer Diegel to join your in-home care team, please contact Summer directly for long-term care options. These sessions follow the client's timeline and the desired outcome of the client(s). Services are offered at a sliding scale rate, please contact Summer Diegel directly with inquiries.

MEMORIAL / VIGIL / CELEBRATION


For many, planning the ways we wish to be remembered and/or caring for those who have died can move us through grief in ways that bring comfort. Some choose to work in collaboration with a trusted funeral home, while others may choose home memorials for comfort, affordability, ease, and more. Your doula can work with you to create and implement a plan that fits your needs regardless of the location. Celebration Planning may include legal information and guidelines, creating a death plan of action (DPoA), meeting 1:1 and write-ups, respite for caregivers, incorporation of traditional & religious practices, working alongside additional doulas, hospice, funeral director(s), or a hospital team​. Services are offered at a sliding scale rate, please contact Summer Diegel directly with inquiries. available by phone/video; in-person services closed
