NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — 9/10 People want to be cared for at home at the end of life, yet half are dying in the hospital or some other medical institution. Family caregivers have unique needs when facing the challenges of death and dying and there’s a new end of life support and training program designed specifically for families and caregivers to help fill this gap in care.
Families and caregivers are invited to participate in a free, 90-minute virtual workshop on August 18th at 7 p.m. Eastern to learn how to care for someone who is dying with special focus on holistic care.
The Doulagivers Level 1 End of Life Doula Caregiver Training
has already delivered to more than 160,000 individuals all over the world by Suzanne O’Brien RN, founder of the International Doulagivers Institute, which trains professional death doulas who bridge the gap in health care between patients/families and hospice care.
Participants in the workshop will learn how to help a loved one from the initial shock of a terminal diagnosis through all three phases of end of life. Topics covered will include planning for an end of life that prioritizes the patient’s needs and wishes, facilitating conversations with friends and family to align expectations, easing anxieties and allowing the patient to control the end-of-life journey. The training also will include intervention strategies in each of the phases of end of life specifically focused on obtaining the highest quality of living every single day.
