About the CareDoula® Way

CareDoula Way is a subscription education service. We offer support to a person who is or would like to accompany the dying and their family in some form of professional or volunteer capacity. Anyone who is interested in making the dying time better is welcome!

You can learn all about our subscription plan and our features HERE.

The CareDoula Way is the premiere subscription-based educational service for anyone who wants to learn the art of accompanying people from the time period of ‘when-treatments-begin-to-stop-working’ through early bereavement.

Upon whom do we focus? Our focus is on the person who is inspired to serve the dying and their family/circle of care in any capacity. It is for people who want to know the ins and outs of end-of-life doula skills. It doesn’t matter what your background is, the art of end-of-life care is important to know. Whether you want to learn everything you can about end-of-life care or you are continuing in your end-of-life doula education or you want to create a unique part-time service, we have something to offer you here. Our aim is to equip people who are highly moved to serve people during this time.

Upon what do we focus? We bring topics that deepen:
1) the art of accompanying the dying from ‘when-treatments-begin-to-stop-working to early bereavement’
2) end-of-life literacy
3) care for ourselves as we care for others
4) creating a unique service
5) community education
6) special end-of-life topics

With an ever increasing library of classes, audios, and tools ranging from the art of the practice to creating your own unique service, Deanna shares her decade’s worth of knowledge and experience and helps people drawn to end of life feel competent, confident and nourished in the process.

The CareDoula® Way empowers people to be with dying more comfortably, regardless of what setting within which they find themselves. We specifically address the person who is helping the person who is dying and their caregiver–the person who is accompanying them–although we welcome everyone who wants to learn more about this very special and sacred time.

The CareDoula® Way is NOT a certification program. It is for people to learn from a trusted source and decide for themselves how they want to use end-of-life knowledge in their lives. That is why it is beneficial for the non-medical person as well as the seasoned healthcare provider.

A native of Washington, DC and longtime resident of Austin, Texas, Deanna Cochran is an internationally known, highly respected leader in end-of-life education and within the end-of-life doula movement. Through trial and error, she created a powerfully effective practice model–CareDoula®. Deanna’s mission is to help others succeed. For a history of her groundbreaking initiatives.
