What is an End of Life Care Doula


 

Our End of Life Care Doulas support not only those at end of life, their loved

ones and family but also their valued supports by providing education,

options, resources, advocacy and companionship.

 

Our End of Life Care Doulas provide true continuity of care.

 Death isn’t just a medical event, 

it is a deeply personal, emotional, spiritual

family, cultural and community matter.

 

An End of Life Doula, as defined by The Australian Doula College is

 “a non-medical role”

that provides support, options and education, assisting the dying

and those around them have their end of life unfold in alignment with their

wishes, to preserve the quality of life, well being and self-worth up to and

beyond the end of life as we know it.

 They are the “informed companion” bringing comfort, support, compassion, and

assist a person and their family in feeling safe and supported during this

important transition “.
