Support a Patient at the End of Life

About

Do you have experience sitting with a loved one at the end of life? Vigil volunteers (also known as death doulas or death midwives) have a very special spirtual/emtional competence. They sit quietly with a patient during life's final journey. They support both patient and family at this tender time. Please consider supporting a patient in your area if you have this special skill.
