CRANFORD, N.J. (PRWEB) January 25, 2019
Just as doulas exist to welcome people into life through birth, end of life doulas accompany the dying and their family during the final stages of life.
Ascend Hospice has developed a unique end of life doula program to provide comprehensive holistic training to the volunteers of Ascend who desire to become end of life doulas. The program provides the tools necessary to teach the doula how to provide support and guidance to people during their end of life journey.
The goal of the Ascend of Life Doula program is rooted in the early philosophy of hospice that no one need to die alone and for the dying and their loved ones to be cared for physically and emotionally during life’s critical transitions. Ascend Hospice is proud and honored to bring this specialized volunteer to our patients and families.
If you would like to become an Ascend of Life Doula please contact Marina McGough, National Director of Volunteer Services, at 1-866-821-1212 or marina.mcgough(at)ascendhealth.com.
