Frequently Asked Questions

When is the right time to engage a death doula?
  • Death doulas can be engaged at any stage of a terminal illness or even before a diagnosis. The earlier the involvement, the more time there is to build a meaningful relationship and plan for the end-of-life journey.

How is a death doula different from hospice care?
  • While hospice care focuses on medical support for individuals with terminal illnesses, a death doula provides non-medical, holistic support that includes emotional, spiritual, and practical assistance.

Are death doulas only for those with a terminal illness?
  • No, death doulas can provide support to anyone facing the end of life, including those with chronic illnesses, elderly individuals, or individuals who simply want to plan for their future.
