Service Description

Death is a situation that we often can not completely prepare for, although it is a natural and unavoidable part of life. Many people have not had much personal experience with people close to them dying, and because of this there is often a lot of fear, questions and uncertainty. End of Life Doulas are the ‘informed companion’, providing options and education, and bringing comfort and compassion to assist a person and their family in feeling safe and supported through this important transition. Their role is to accompany the individual and their loved ones through the final months, weeks and days of life – right up until the time death occurs, as well as after death care and into the deep mourning process. This support can also be for families or individuals who have experienced a sudden or traumatic death. Navigating the days and weeks after the loss and helping with the arrangements, be it at home or within a hospital or aged care facility. Presence is the foundation for everything we do. Emotional support, active listening, and creation of a peaceful environment are of utmost importance. A doula’s support can relieve stress and burdensome tasks from the family, and also gives the dying individual psychological, spiritual and emotional support during the process. We are here to ensure that individuals and their families do not feel alone or isolated
