End of Life Doulas – guiding the journey to the Spirit World

FNHA recently partnered with Douglas College to offer End of Life Doula training for community members who already do this work naturally in their communities/regions. The goal of the educational training was to add to their knowledge on working with the family, hospital, funeral home, public health nurses and community health nurses to support the wishes of the person journeying into the Spirit World.

End of Life Doulas do not replace family or health care providers.  Their role is to support the individual and family with their decisions, spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically. The program was offered in five locations across the province, and 86 people were trained, from 47 different First Nation communities.
