“How to Comfort the Dying at Home” – Online – Friday, October 6, 2023 (11:30 am – 1 pm central time)
Description: This program will provide information about the dying process and the various stages people go through at the end of life. We will examine how to best support people going through this process at home.
Upon completion of this program, the participant will be able to:
∙ Understand the dying process and common experiences at the end of life.
∙ Identify the active dying phase including the symptoms and causes of terminal agitation.
∙ Recognize the ways to support someone who wants to die at home.
∙ Understand the importance of The Ring Theory and self-care for caregivers.
∙ Recognize how death doulas, care teams, and loved ones can support people dying at home together with grace and empathy.
The link will be emailed to you before the session. This is available for 1.5 CEUs through the Continuing Education Institute of Illinois. I’d also welcome caregivers, patients, and curious participants. Please join us! Each session also includes an “Ask a Doula” Q&A at the end where I’ll answer all your questions.
