As an experienced Death Doula and Death Educator in Elora, Ontario, Karry Sawatsky offers personal support for individuals and families. She offers guidance in planning as well as support leading up to death, at death and after.
Karry came to deathcare through experiencing the deaths of a few close people. She was left with an intuitive sense that there must be another way to do dying, death and bereavement than the current cultural model.
This led her to become a Death Doula and start Modern Deathcare. She is committed to educating the public about the end-of-life options and alternatives that are available and connecting people with resources. She is dedicated to reclaiming community-centred deathcare whereby families are empowered to enact their own end-of-life care if they choose. Karry believes in encouraging cultural reengagement in dying, death and bereavement and that death planning leads to a meaningful and transformational experience.
