What is an End-of-Life (Death) Doula?
An End-of-Life (Death) Doula educates and empowers people to make informed decisions on their own end-of-life care and final burial. End-of-Life (Death) Doulas are non-medical individuals who are trained to care for a person and their family holistically in the last phase of life. They may serve the elderly (possibly for years before their death), the terminally ill, at any age the grieving, those who have lost or are about to say goodbye to a loved one, those not near death but who want to wrestle with and confront their own mortality now, those looking to practically plan for end-of-life, at any age and regardless of health status.
An End-of-Life (Death) Doula provides on going comfort and support to the dying; they stay by their side, providing physical comfort, informing them of what is taking place and advocating for them when necessary. They provide human comfort and support allowing the dying to die in their own way.
” You would know the secret of death. But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life.”
