The International End of Life Doula Association (INELDA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that was founded in February of 2015. The organization has grown considerably since its inception. Its mission is to change the face of dying by training, educating, and certifying end-of-life (EOL) doulas to serve dying individuals and their loved ones. EOL Doulas support and guide people throughout the dying process. This role of EOL doula is based on the approach utilized by birth doulas in the U.S. since the 1970s. That approach has been translated into end-of-life care and modified for the different kinds of needs experienced by dying individuals. In addition, INELDA assists hospices, hospitals, long-term care facilities and communities to build internal EOL doula programs to serve their populations.
