End of Life Doulas (EOL Doulas) provide non-medical, non-judgmental, holistic support, companionship, and comfort to the dying person and their family.
End Of Life Doulas offer the client an opportunity to explore the meaning of their life and their impact on others. One of the ways EOL Doulas can support the dying person is with assistance to create a Legacy Project based on their ideas of what is important and how they wish to be remembered.
Another way is by helping them to create a unique Vigil (plan) that reflects the dying person's vision of a good death. An example of a Vigil could be to plan how the dying space looks and feels; the music or sounds; readings and rituals, and so much more.
EOL Doulas provide non-medical support. We do not perform any clinical tasks.
EOL Doulas nurture, inform, support, guide, empower, and comfort.
For client needs outside of the EOL Doula's scope of practice, the EOL Doula makes referrals to appropriate professionals and community resources.
EOL Doulas do not usurp the role of other professionals and caregivers such as the hospice nurse, social worker, chaplain, home health aide, etc.
