Embracing HospiceCare is seeking volunteer End-of-Life Doulas to support our patients and their loved ones. Whether you have experience serving as an EOL Doula or are just starting out, we would love to hear from you. Here at Embracing, we see the value of EOL doulas and recognize the important role they play in the dying process. The EOL Doulas we are looking for must:

  • Have an understanding of what it means to "hold space" (to be present physically, mentally, and emotionally) for patients and their loved ones
  • Have excellent communication and listening skills
  • Bring a comforting and peaceful presence to the bedside
  • Be comfortable with death and the dying process
  • Be compassionate and empathetic

Experience with seniors and hospice care is preferred but not required. An EOL Doula certification or EOL Doula training is a plus nut not required. Embracing HospiceCare has a certified EOL Doula on staff who will oversee the training of volunteer EOL Doulas*.

Volunteer EOL Doulas must commit to a minimum of 40 field service hours. Hours can be used to count towards a formal EOL doula certification such as those offered by the International End-of-Life Doula Association (INELDA) or similar training organizations.

Positions are available in Monmouth, Ocean, Mercer, Middlesex, and Somerset counties. To learn more, please contact our volunteer director, Becky Colby, at 732-974-2545 or via email at bcolby@ehcnj.com.

*Please note that this opportunity is not a formal EOL Doula training or certification program. Volunteers will not earn an EOL Doula certification by completing this commitment.
