HHA's Changemaker of the Month
Merri-Lee Agar (July 2018)

Merri-Lee became passionate about hospice palliative care when her mother was able to spend the last weeks of her life at the comfort of her home surrounded by loved ones. Answering this calling she started volunteering at hospices in 2012. Now she is a Death Doula, Bereavement Specialist and Reiki Master/Teacher and she’s been part of HHA’s family for 3,5 years.


Merri-Lee believes that a smile can warm the heart and it helps to bring people back into this moment. Love fills her with joy, between others, specially the love for her daughter and her 19-year-old cat.


She hopes that her work will help people to have better access to the care they need and want.
