End of Life Doula

Doulas are professionals serving people at the end of life. I provide logistical, emotional, physical, & unbiased support & advocacy to individuals, their families, & care teams. The End of Life Doula Training program was created out of pure need and necessity. 9/10 people want to be kept at home if terminally ill, yet half are dying in the hospital.

What do End-of-Life Doulas do?

While many Doulas have a background in Healthcare,
doulas, traditionally, do not offer medical advice or care under this role, in any capacity.

An End-of-Life (EOL) Doula is a non-medical professional that provides physical, emotional, and spiritual support to the patient, family, loved ones, friends, and their support networks. An EOL Doula will assist the family with understanding the natural process while providing suggestions for comfort and support. This holistic support for the dying and their loved ones will occur before, during, and after death. Every patient and family served is unique and services will be tailored to their individual needs. The goal of an EOL Doula is to collaborate with hospice, palliative team, and other healthcare professionals to create a dynamic support system ensuring the highest quality of life for a patients end-of-life care. Referrals to appropriate professional and community resources will be made as needed for services that are outside of the EOL Doula scope of practice. An EOL Doula will provide education regarding the end-of-life processes and options available so that patients and families can make informed decisions about their care. An EOL doula is not a medical provider and as such any information or advice given should be viewed in that light.
