|End of Life Doula Training|
Event Type: ADULT PROGRAM - REGISTERED|
Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Time: 8:30 PM
Are you a non-medical person who is interested in improving your family members' or community members' end-of-life experience? Or perhaps you're a healthcare professional who wants to hone your skills in caring for the dying? This four-hour training session (over two classes on November 13 and 20) will introduce you to the concept of End of Life Doulas.
You may know the term "doula" to represent someone who is trained to assist another woman during childbirth and who may provide emotional, physical, and spiritual support to the family after the baby is born.
An End of Life Doula uses very much the same philosophy. Even with the wonderful services of hospice care, time constraints and insurance restrictions can lead to gaps in care, support, and teaching for patients and their families. An End of Life Doula can help bridge that gap.
Presenter/trainer Jennifer Hoit has ten years of experience in homecare nursing, and currently works for Eddy Senior Care PACE in Schenectady.
