Mission Statement

Doula volunteers are trained and assigned to visit seriously ill individuals in hospitals, nursing homes, and in their homes. Doulas provide compassionate companionship and support that minimizes a person' sense of isolation and loneliness at end of life.

Description

Doula volunteers have an eight night training before being assigned to visit with an individual who is at end of life. They are supported through weekly telephone calls and bimonthly meetings with other doula volunteers to share their experiences. Volunteers are expected to visit 1-2 hours weekly.
