What is the Difference Between Hospice & Death Doula Services?
This is one of the biggest questions I get, "how are death doulas and hospice different?" Or, "why would someone need an end of life doula when there is hospice?" Or, "are death doulas competing with hospice?" These are variations of the same question. Listen in as I give you a foundation of what role each plays.

3 Keys to Starting Your End of Life Doula Practice
As you study the 3 keys to starting your end of life doula practice, you may feel awkward right now, but over time, as you learn more about these principles and practice them, you will feel better. I promise! It's not rocket science to accompany the dying, it is a human endeavor, natural to us--it is something we have always done. However, if you want to do this in a professional capacity, it has been my experience that you need to have more intentional development. Blessings on your journey. love, Deanna

Death Doulas Use Same Skills for COVID-19
What you have learned as a death doula is the same set of skills and awarenesses that you need now, during COVID-19. Its not that we need new skills, its that we need to dive deeper within for a newer deeper level of self care to be that guiding light that we already are, whether we are aware of it or not.

Self Care for Professional Caregivers
We had a fantastic time in this interview! But of course, I'm not talking with just anyone who is carefully living in between the lines--I'm speaking with Elena Lipson, Divine Self Care Mentor. Self care is more than a bubble bath, it is deep. We are used to quick fixes and band aids and measuring our results often by grand moments of success or failure. But sometimes (and this is one of those times) 'success' as far as our care for our selves goes, should be measured over time. The proof is in our sense of well being, day after day. We know when we are off track. My hope is that listening to this podcast with Elena, who devotes her life to this topic, will motivate you to take even better care of yourself than you already are, perhaps help you 'get back on the wagon' if you've fallen off. Learn more about Elena here: www.elenalipson.com End of Life Doula Training and Certificate Program. More HERE. Quality of Life Care sponsors "Journey with Deanna" podcast.

Are You the 'Go-to' Person?
The "Go to" person is that special person within a circle that people know they can turn to during serious situations. Whether it has to do with end of life or not, if you are this person within your family and friend circle, then you are actually dealing with many of the same issues that end of life doulas face. And, it's trickier to be this person because you are known as the best friend, the daughter, the 'cousin who knows', the nurse relative - somehow you are 'in the know', as well as you caring deeply about the person in need. This podcast is for you if you need a little guidance on how to care for you as you care for others.

"The Calling," You Have It or You Don't
Anyone can receive end of life training to know more about the time period, what to do, how to be helpful and to feel more comfortable assisting others. But not everyone who seeks this out has the 'calling.' The calling is that powerful desire deep in your bones that you knoow you are meant to offer yourself in this way in service to others as they die. When people reach out to me, they talk about this and it is interesting that so many feel strange for having the calling to serve others at the end of life. They are told that by family and friends who don't understand them. For the first time, often people tell me they finally feel understood and don't feel like a weird person. Hospice professionals and end of life doulas alike talk often about how people look at them when they say what they do and how they feel about thier work. It is profound to carry this calling. Most people respect it. In this week's podcast I discuss the calling.

Referring to Hospice
Yes! Refer to hospice as a death doula. You may be serving people who are not on hospice yet and who may not realize all they are missing by NOT getting the great care they are entitled to. You may be instrumental in relieving their suffering by getting them into palliative care (whether or not they are dying). Listen in as we talk about all this.

"Nurse With the Purple Hair"--A New Film by Sean Cunningham
This interview with Sean Cunningham is so wonderful as you can hear the awe in his voice for the work of hospice.

World-renowned filmmaker of the Friday the 13th series, he takes us on quite a different journey this time.
