Death Doula vs Hospice

The difference between hospice and death doulas is that death doulas do not provide medical care. Instead, death doulas work in conjunction with hospice programs to provide interpersonal, social, logistical, and spiritual guidance that complements the care they receive in hospice.

Why Hire a Death Doula?

By having an end-of-life plan and someone to go to for advice, it may help everyone feel less stressed and more at ease. It always relieves the burden of one of your family members having to organize their loved one's end-of-life care.
