Experienced Hospice and Oncology Nurse Suzanne B. O'Brien will hold Community Workshops to teach families how to care for their loved ones at the end of life.
NEW YORK, NY, USA, July 8, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Doulagivers, the leader of specialized training in End of Life Care and End of Life Doula Trainings is offering free Level 1 Family Caregiver Trainings to teach family members and community volunteers the skills of how to care for the dying. A hundred years ago this was a skill that grandmothers handed down to grandchildren. In our society today, it is all but lost. This lack of understanding has contributed to a deep rooted cultural fear of death that is making end of life a thousand times harder than it has to be. The Doulagivers Level 1 End of Life Doula Training has been successfully used by thousands of people in over eight countries. The main goal of Doulagiversl is to share this knowledge with anyone who would like to have it. It can mean the difference between a positive end of life and one that does not go well.
“We only have one opportunity to have the end of life experience go well. It is something that the family will remember forever. It is time to share support and education so everyone can have the opportunity to have the most positive experience possible.” – Suzanne B. O'Brien
BABY BOOMER NUMBERS ARE ALARMING: We have 76 million people over the age of 65 years old in the United States at this moment. Twenty percent of them do not have their own children. We have a huge need for communities to become involved in the volunteer work with the care and compassion necessary to ensure that everyone can have a peaceful end of life experience. The Doulagivers Level 1 Training is designed so that anyone and everyone can understand the basic end of life processes and how to suggest and offer comfort to families and patients throughout these processes.
Suzanne B. O'Brien RN believes that it is imperative that everyone has the basic knowledge to offer support within their families and communities at this precious last phase of life. If everyone can contribute a little bit of time and compassion, it relieves so much burden from the caregivers and families so that facilitating a good death for every end of life patient around the world becomes possible.
“9/10 people polled said that if they were terminally ill they would want to be cared for at home, yet more than half are dying in the hospital or some other institution.” – NHPCO Gallop Poll 1996
