What is a Death Doula? An end-of-life doula is a support person who provides nonjudgmental, non-medical holistic support to those nearing the end of life.
An end-of-life doula also typically offers support to the friends and family of the elderly, dying, or recently dead.
An end-of-life doula educates and empowers individuals to make decisions on their own end-of-life care and final burial or funeral.
