Hello! Welcome to Earthside's blog page!
We hope you will come back often and see the new and exciting things we are accomplishing.
We begin our journey by offering End of Life Doula Certification classes for Utah residents. We thoroughly train our students to be End of Life Doula's as we personally mentor them every step of the way through our program. We do not offer on-line classes. We believe that the End of Life Doula should have better training available that consists of more than a weekend retreat or an impersonal online course. We oversee the entire process and facilitate the volunteer hours needed to gain our certification and mentor our student members long after the class has ended. We also have monthly think tank/coffee pow-wows so that our students have the chance to interact with each other and gain professional relationships to support each other. Earthside believes in building a compassionate caregiving Community, not in promoting Competition in this industry.
End of Life Doula's do not compete with other end of life professions, such as Hospice or Hospital staff. We are there to support Hospice and other caregivers and offer compassionate service and companionship to those who need us. Hospice is a medical profession. End of Life Doula's are not.
Earthside also facilitates Caregiver Wellness/Compassion Fatigue workshops for businesses such as Assisted Living Homes, Home Health and Hospice, Hospitals, Veterinarian offices, Therapists, etc...
There are many other areas of Earthside in the works.... stay tuned for those!!
