What a Death Doula or End-of-Life Doula Is
End of Life Doulas provide support to those who are nearing or at the end of their lives. Sally provides information to the dying their partners and family members throughout the different stages of the dying process.
Sally considers her job to be helping facilitate a “Good Death”.
In order to accomplish this goal Sally serves as a consultant, mediator, support system, and an empathetic listener for all involved.
Although Sally is licensed in the state of Florida as an LPN, and her years working in Hospice have given her experience, her role as a Doula is non-medical. Sally is more than willing to advocate for the dying to help ensure they get the medical care they need from the Healthcare support team.
Sally provides consulting services that go beyond the physical needs of the dying she considers their emotional, social, and spiritual needs. Sally does this by educating and empowering the dying and their families on end of life care options.

• The elderly

• Those who about to say Goodbye to a loved one or whom have lost a loved one and are grieving
