Giving You Control When You Need It Most

The Role of the End-of-Life Doula

  • The essence of doula care is to provide non-medical, non-judgmental support and guidance to individuals and families through times of critical, transformative life change.

  • EOL doulas nurture, inform, support, guide, empower and comfort.

  • EOL doulas work with other caregivers and members of the medical team.

  • Doulas foster self-determination in their clients by assisting them in gathering information and encouraging them to make informed choices that are right for them.

  • For client needs outside of the doula’s scope of practice, the doula makes referrals to appropriate professionals and community resources.

  • Doula support is focused on, and adapted to, the unique needs and requirements of each family served.
