Dignity, intention, and reverence for life should be part of all transformations from this life into the next realm. End of life doula service is a powerful way to ensure that these ideals can be fulfilled in the dying process.
Hiring an end of life doula is an important step in assisting yourself or a loved one as you prepare to celebrate life, legacy, and love in the end-of-life stage. End of life doulas work with the aging and ill to help them bring closure to relationships, prepare their legacy for survivors, plan their vigil, and create their memorial service.
