The Most In-Depth, Comprehensive, Supportive
End-of-Life Doula Certificate Program
‘What It Takes’ to Be the Best End of Life Advocate
& Companion through Heart-Centered Service 
Study From Anywhere! Work at Your Own Pace.
Welcome to your new doula home base with Quality of Life Care! If you are receiving this brochure, you have requested more details before you make decisions about your future training. Thank you for including us in your search. We are honored you are considering our Program.

Our program was the first of its kind and we have been working with EOL doulas to achieve their dreams since 2010. Below explains our unique process.

Our core curriculum is our online signature course material, “Accompanying the Dying: A Practical Guide and Awareness Training.” In this course, we cover the essentials of what it takes to accompany another person and their family through dying and death, and afterwards. We cover all time periods and all settings of where a person may be. Deanna has integrated all her hospice RN experience since 2000, as well as her years as a private end of life doula in private practice since 2005, to create this very practical and comprehensive program for you. She has been mentoring pioneers from around the world to create innovative practices for all these years as well!

This is no ordinary course where you may feel bored with the typical information you can learn yourself in an afternoon online. Instead, we are discussing the ‘doula way.’ This is something that takes time to become confident in and feel grounded with the parts of ‘being’ and knowing. We thoroughly teach to the end of life issues and practices you must know, as well as the art of the practice. There is also a very special component of guiding you through your own personal journey examining your own history. This is crucial to the development of the awareness you need to offer your best self to the one you are companioning.
We also have a bonus section for those of you who are also seeking to add some form of private practice for pay. We give you everything from all Deanna’s years of experience as a private practitioner, saving you years of headaches and thousands of dollars.

We are right here with you every step of the way. You are not investing in a process that simply regurgitates end of life facts, medications, funeral laws, forms, etc.; you are enlisting our support to fully guide you as you gain confidence in integrating your unique gifts with your ideas of how you may want to serve others through dying and death.

The training is truly stellar. You will not find a more complete program anywhere. We support you to explore this material at your pace and for your own purposes.
Our signature End-of-Life Doula Certificate program is a proven and tested End-of-Life Doula implementation program that teaches you how to start or improve a beautifully powerful service with 100% confidence and help you become known and serving in your community quickly.

It doesn't matter if you don't have any specific skills or advanced education or any previous medical experience. Everything you need to know is provided step-by-step in this training program.

The methods taught in the Certified CareDoula® program have been thoroughly tested and proven with hundreds of students around the world. 

The program has helped people like you develop aprivate practice shifting from their present occupation to their dream of serving their community while earning a living and contributing to their family. These students go on to mentor others in their community—as you will, as so many want to do.

What Students Are Saying...
"Working with you has helped me to align myself with that feels right to me in this work. You confirmed in me what my passions and gifts are. Getting validation from someone with your knowledge and experience in this field has changed me forever. I truly mean that. I didn’t know being a “Death Doula” was even a thing. I now know 100% what my purpose is. Thank you for all of your time and the energy you put into this program. You are changing lives."
- Tiffany R.
"I cannot thank you enough....Coming into the program I was very clear on what I believed my direction with End of Life work was. However, very shortly into the program with your guidance, intuition and foresight I was able to clarify and focus my true hearts calling. This program not only gave me the opportunity to communicate and connect with others of like mind, but to expand on the tools needed to clarify my calling."

- Cynthia B.
"I have learned that despite my inner fears and insecurities, I am innately ready to support the dying and their loved ones. I have felt the ability and strength to do this work most of my adult life but now, after taking this beautifully designed course, I know I was made to do it. It’s like all of my experiences, struggles, abilities, strengths, lessons, interests, so many facets of me point directly to me doing this work. I’ve had the tools the whole time, but your experience and direction has offered a structure to put all the technical details in order. I’ve mentioned before that I am not a technical person so this course has helped me tremendously. I feel I have a foundation to build upon now rather than standing in a murky pond knowing what I need lies beneath the surface but not able to see it. It’s so much clearer now. It gives me great comfort knowing I have the section material and my responses at my finger tips for reference to easily and often refresh myself.
- Sara W.
"You are 'real', down to earth and enlightened; I am drawn to those qualities and I know these are ultimately a great part of your success in this field! I strive to create change in this emerging 'grassroots' area of life and death. Death is just as much a part of life as is birth. I am humbled to be in your 'arena' Deanna, Thank you."
- June Fitzpatrick, Hospice RN
