Beth Almerini has spent over thirty years at the bedside of the dying, and brings an open heart and wealth of experience to her work. She is both a Certified Hospice and Palliative Nurse and End of Life Doula who, in addition to caring for clients and their families, also teaches and mentors other End of Life Doulas. Beth began her journey in end of life care while working as a nurse’s aide where she was asked to literally sit with a woman who was dying alone. It turned out that simple things, such as being present, holding a hand, reading a poem and singing a hymn were exactly what was needed to bring comfort and peace. Comfort, peace, presence, and kindness are what Beth brings to an experience that can be unfamiliar and frightening for the dying and their families alike.
Beth is based in central NJ and is open to travel within the state as well as NYC and Philadelphia. She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or (732) 915-3529.
