Similar to hospital or hospice volunteers who sit vigils with patients in the twilight hours of people's lives, end-of-life doulas can help individuals and families embrace their final hours through preparation and presence. An article last year in the New York Times covers some of the work that end-of-life doulas may do. There are also several organizations that provide training and mentorship, such as INELDA and Accompanying the Dying. For many health systems, doulas are already recognized care providers. Expanding their role to end-of-life care could help patients have a smoother transition during this liminal time by understanding their wishes for a good death.
