Why We Need Non-Medical End of Life Care Practitioners Now More Than Ever

Fact #1

There are 76.4 million Baby Boomers living in the United States. 

20% of them do not have children to act as caregivers. 

Fact #2

9/10 people want to be kept at home if they become terminally ill.

Yet over half are dying in the hospital or long-term care facility.

Fact #3

In 2034, adults aged 65 and over will outnumber children aged 18 and younger for the first time in U.S. history. 

The number of people aged 65 and over is projected to increase from 52 million in 2018 to 98 million by 2060. 

Fact #4

As the number of elderly people is increasing, the number of medical professionals is decreasing. 

The U.S. could see a shortage of 120,000 physicians and will need 12 million new nurses by 2030.

What is a Death Doula?

A Death Doula is a non-medical professional trained to provide emotional, physical, spiritual, and informational support to a patient and family before, during, and after death. Death Doulas are also known around the world as: End of Life Doulas, Transition Guides, Death Coaches, and End of Life Guides.

We simply refer to our certified graduates as Doulagivers.

Professional Death Doulas work as an adjunct support to traditional Hospice services to provide the best possible support to patients, families, and the medical care team throughout the entire end of life journey. 

Due to the unprecedented rise in the elderly population both in the United States and globally, there is now overwhelming demand for these services and support that is only projected to grow over the next several decades. Death Doulas are an innovative solution to the eldercare and end of life care crisis facing our mainstream healthcare system.

If you feel called to work in this space professionally, finding the right teacher and training program is one of the most important decisions you will make.

Doulagivers Institute, founded by Suzanne B. O’Brien RN, provides the highest level of education and certification for professional Death Doulas. We are establishing the gold standard within this field of non-medical end of life care practitioners. Our graduates are doing incredible work guiding patients and families through their end of life journeys and are truly changing the world! 

If you have the calling and want to start a rewarding new career as a professional Death Doula, you can find everything you need at Doulagivers Institute. We are an internationally recognized leader in end of life training programs and care.
