Just as doulas exist to welcome people into life through birth, end of life doulas accompany the dying and their family during the final stages of life. Doulas provide support, education, resources, and companionship to those who are entering the journey into death. Volunteers who spend their time in this role need to understand how to best support the dying and their families.
Ascend Hospice has partnered with Quality of Life Care and their unique, end of life doula training to provide comprehensive holistic training to volunteers willing to take on an end of life doula role. Our program helps provide the tools necessary to teach the doula how to provide support and guidance to people during their end of life journey.
