On November 3-5 the North Hawaii Hospice hosted the first ever end-of-life doula training in Hawaii. GoGracefully had the pleasure to help facilitate this event. There were fifteen participants over a three day intensive workshop. The training included many exercises to develop skills associated with being present. Along with many practical aspects ranging from recognizing signs at the end of life to providing comfort for both the patient and the caregiver. The new trainees created their own end of life plans, completed hands on patient care hours, and will attend continuing education classes. The End of Life Doula Training is a thoughtful planning about how the last days can look.
To compensate for this unmet need that exists in our modern world, GoGracefullyTM has created a more extensive training program to train thousands of GoGracefully GuidesTM. Our program calls for vigil care and educates trainees regarding the critical aspects of emotional and spiritual support for both the dying person and their loved ones. Students work alongside our Master GuidesTM to provide non-medical support. Creating support for the emotional and psychological aspects of death is a vast subject.
