What is a Doula?

Too many people die without their affairs in order, which creates confusion and frustration for the families during an already emotional time.

ABODE End of Life Doulas provide practical help and support to both the dying person and their family. We guide families in understanding and accessing palliative care, hospice care and pain management services, ensuring that comfort and quality of life are prioritized.

We also help take the mystery out of the dying process, so the family and dying person have time and space to honor the transition.

What is an ABODE Doula?
