Joy Wirta Chapter Champion Home Hospice North
Joy Wirta, a true Northern girl born and raised. Wife and mother of two amazing children and grandmother of four. With two decades of experience as a Public Servant and Founder of Dragonfly Advisory Services, an aftercare program designed to assist families with the overwhelming tasks after a death has occurred.
There was still an aspiration to do more, so began a journey as a Death Doula and continuously advocate for choices for those dying. Working to build strong relationships with our community for better end of life care. Her passion and drive has led her to a more holistic approach to dying, and it is her wish that everyone have the opportunity to die the best death possible for their end of life journey. Over years past we have all heard the saying “It takes a village to raise a child” well “It takes a village to help someone through the journey of dying”.
As a Death Doula it is her desire and responsibility to assist in educating, support, comfort and occasionally advocate for the dying. Her continuing passion for her Northern communities has led her to work and education the community on the option of Home Hospice. “Knowing that where ever we have a pillow we can provide hospice care, enriches our Northern communities and gives more choices today than ever before.”
“It is my belief that we come into this world in loving arms, and we all should have an opportunity to leave this world
the same way”
