End of Life Doula Sisters
An End of Life Doula is a companion to the dying, someone who supports people emotionally, physically and spiritually throughout the process of dying. By assisting the client in discussing their wishes for their last days up until their last moment, we are creating a space for a peaceful transition free from fear and anxiety. Our mission is to create a healing culture around death and dying, to accept and honor death as a sacred moment in the beauty, mystery, and celebration of life.
Having been trained in the three phases of end of life care, the doula can be a resource for the patient and the family. Explaining what they are experiencing and offering appropriate suggestions that they may or may not consider to do for comfort for the patient.
The End of Life Doula is not a home health aid and is not there to do any hands on care, e.g., bathing, toileting, feeding etc. If the doula wants to help with any of these duties that will be up to his or her discretion. The EOLD is there to only be a companion to the dying and their loved ones.
The Doula does not make ANY decisions related to end of life care for the patient directly.
The Doula will not project their own beliefs and will always remain nonjudgmental.
