The RN role is different from the End of Life Doula role, in that it is medical-based, and the End of Life Doula role is non-medical. I can help in many ways, as an RN, or as an End of Life Doula, or both combined together. I am here to help and support in whatever way is needed to ensure peace and comfort at the end of life.
What is the role of an RN?
Support for the End of Life Option Act: Supportive assistance and presence for the dying person and their loved ones, when this option has been arranged.
End of Life Guidance and Support: Home visits to support and assess needs.
On Call services: I am available for phone communication if concerns arise.
Medication management: Symptom management; organization.
Advocacy: I can communicate with the your Physician, or the hospice team, if needs arise.
Referral and Resources.
No one will be turned away, due to lack of finances.
