For 34 years, Eric Rooney has been passionate about nature, regeneration, and caring for humans as a farmer, story-teller, visionary, founder, death doula, and speaker.
End-of-Life Care or “hospice” focuses on the care, comfort, and quality of life of a person with a serious illness who is approaching the end of life. At some point, it may not be possible to cure a serious illness, or a patient may choose not to undergo certain treatments.
Legal in Colorado since 2016, this end-of-life option allows an eligible terminally-ill individual with a prognosis of six months or less to live to request and self-administer medical aid-in-dying medication in order to voluntarily end his or her life with the authorization of a physician to prescribe medical aid-in-dying medication to the individual under certain conditions.
Speaking on a variety of death topics- from end-of-life, to green burial options, to grief-Eric Rooney moves his audience from fear to peace and heartbreak to hope with story-telling, honesty, education, and loving care.
