Welcome to Further Shore


“Honest listening is one of the best medicines we can offer the dying and the bereaved.”-Jean Cameron, Author of Time to Live, Time to Die

The mission and purpose of Further Shore, Inc. is to provide resources and education about living well and dying with dignity.

LIVING WELL ~ Whether inquiring as a patient, caregiver, family member, or friend, you will find circumstance appropriate instruction and guidance for general wellness. Recommendations for self-care and quality-of-life supportive practices are based on time honored natural remedies and seasonal timings lending to a gentler, more balanced path. Together, we explore what it means to be “well” at any and every stage of living or dying. These offerings are especially helpful for individuals facing a serious or chronic illness and for those who care for loved ones in decline.

DYING WITH DIGNITY ~ The heart and soul of our mission is prehospice education and practical support for a seriously ill person and their loved ones. This important aspect of our intention is to increase understanding about the value of palliative care bridge programs and Medicare supported hospice care. Programs are for anyone wishing to explore these issues in a safe setting, before a crisis arises or after loss. They are tailored and facilitated to help alleviate the anxiety associated with transition and loss.

All services are offered by Aleia upon request, and are private and confidential. Consultations can be held in a person’s home or virtually as needed. As a 501C3 nonprofit, we gratefully receive donations in lieu of a formal fee for services.
