What is a Death Doula?
A death doula (or end of life doula) is a non-medical person who provides emotional support to people throughout the dying process. The doula heart is filled with compassion, ensuring each person served feels heard, empowered, and honoured.
According to the End of Life Doula Association of Canada, "End-of-life doulas empower, educate and encourage people and their families to be involved in making end-of-life decisions. Death is a process that can span over months or even years rather than an event and doulas can help with supporting and planning. "
- I would like to help bring forward a more comfortable state of being with end of life care; bringing peace and grace to what can be a beautiful stage of life
How may I serve you as a death doula?
I can be there to help families by being a companion to your loved one. I will spend time with them, allowing you to take care of yourself.
- my role is to provide planning, support, and comfort in a way that best suits the patient and family, filling in the gap between Hospice and care-givers in an unobtrusive, compassionate manner
Care that I am able to provide includes informational, emotional and physical support, while being a good listener and bringing an alternative perspective to what is often a very challenging time for most people. Let me help you through the transition of death by providing emotional, spiritual and psychological support. Allow me to offer comfort at this emotional time.
