Remembering a Life Podcast

◄ back to podcasts rss

When a loved one dies, honoring their memory is one of the most meaningful ways to ensure their legacy lives on. Join host Holly Ignatowski and end-of-life experts for thoughtful and meaningful discussions about ways to remember a life, grieve and support others. New episodes are released the second Wednesday of each month.

When we hear the term “doula,” we probably most often think of a birth doula – someone who helps bring new life into the world. However, increasingly, doulas are also helping people through their final days. Our guest, Marggie Hatala, is one of approximately 400 certified end-of-life doulas in the United States. Marggie has been an end-of-life doula for six years, providing families with in-home end-of-life support prior to and throughout the dying experience. 

About the Guest
Marggie Hatala BSN, RN, CEOLD, a Certified Elder Care and End of Life Doula, combines these services in combination with her experience as an RN to offer holistic, non-medical support as a Life Doula. In this way, Marggie walks with her clients through the challenges of chronic illness, aging and decline and through their final days. Her deep spiritual presence, extensive knowledge and experience, and peaceful assurance allows them to feel the depth of her support. Additionally, Marggie seamlessly includes this support with her role as a Nurse Advocate with Ikor Life Care Management for clients that benefit from the inclusion of medical advocacy.
