End-of-life doula = comfort and support

An end-of-life doula is a professional trained to provide emotional and practical support to individuals and their families as they approach the end of life. They assist individuals and their families in creating a meaningful and comfortable experience during this difficult time. End-of-life doulas often provide services such as companioning and comforting the individual, facilitating communication between the individual and their healthcare team, and helping to create a peaceful and soothing environment.

End-of-life doulas can also provide support to the family after the individual has passed away. They can assist with funeral and memorial planning, provide grief counseling, and offer practical support as needed.

In addition to their role in individual care, end-of-life doulas also advocate for broader societal changes to ensure that individuals have access to quality end-of-life care and support. They work to promote end-of-life education and awareness, and to encourage conversations about death and dying to become more open and less taboo.

Overall, the role of an end-of-life doula is to provide comfort, support, and practical assistance to individuals and their families as they navigate the end-of-life experience.
