In a nutshell, hospice is medical clinical care and end of life doula care is non-medical compassionate care. They may provide some fo the same services such as deep listening and practical support.
You can work with an end of life doula long before you reach the end of life. Many doulas offer services to help you get your affairs in order ahead of time before there is a need.
You can also start working with an end of life doula when you've been diagnosed with an terminal illness and may have years, months or weeks left to live.
Caregivers can also work with an end of life doula to create a plan of support for their elderly or dying loved one.
Yes, we can work together even if you are not local to the area. I have access to materials that are specific to each state as well. Most of the services I offer can be done by Zoom video calls.
End of Life Doula services are not covered by insurance. This is a private pay service.
