What is an End of Life Doula?
The word "doula" is Greek for servant or helper. Like a birth doula supports women during the labour process, a death doula supports a person during the dying process. This support is specific to that person's needs, beliefs, and desires. Death is a process that can span over months or even years rather than an event and doulas can help with supporting and planning for the future, regardless of diagnosis or illness. Having a conversation or making a plan when you are healthy, is encouraged by doulas so that the care received at the end of life is appropriate
and aligned with your wishes
Helen is a long-time caregiver whose heart goes out to anyone having challenges in their lives, but especially those who are dealing with a terminal diagnosis and those caring for those loved ones. It’s important to her that people are able to find support, not be alone as they navigate their end of life or the care of someone at the end of life. It can be very lonely, not always knowing where to turn for help, struggling with asking for help, having someone to speak to about those challenges and remembering that it is important to include self-care for everyone along this journey.
The Art of Being a Doula
Here at Blueberry Road, we are aware of how overwhelming it can be when it comes to assembling an advance plan. That is why we strive to bring a creative thoughtful twist to the process by focusing on art as an outlet for stress. We want you to have fun designing the legacy art you want and enjoy the final moments of your or your loved one's life.
