From the University of Vermont Professional and Continuing Education, we bring you stories from End-of-Life Doulas. We explore how Death Doulas trained through UVM's End-of-Life Doula Professional Certificate Program, are supporting the dying and their families.
End-of-Life Doula students and practicing Doulas share their stories about helping people during their end of life journey. End-of-Life Doulas complement the care provided by family members and friends, as well as medical, palliative, and hospice professionals, within the settings of hospitals, senior care facilities, and homes.
Death Doulas support clients with individualized, compassionate care in a number of ways, including emotional, spiritual, informational, and physical support, which greatly helps to lower stress levels, aid in comfort, and promote personalized, even positive, dying passages for clients and their loved ones.
