What does an end-of-life doula do?
As an End-of-life doula, I confidently provide comprehensive support to individuals during their final days and moments. My services encompass emotional support, companionship, navigating the medical system, and arranging caregiving and home clean-up. Also, I can offer spiritual guidance if you'd like.
I initiate an in-person consultation with new clients to ensure our professional relationship is a good fit. During this meeting, I asked about the specific type of support needed and highlighted the advantages of working with a doula. In addition, we can talk about your expectations of me as your doula to ensure we agree on how best I can help you.
Customizable packages can include caregiver support, hospice care, bereavement support, information, and resources to assist you in making decisions about medical care.
