This virtual presentation will teach you about End-of-Life doulas – trained non-medical providers, who can be present from an initial diagnosis to ultimate death.

While we may understand and hopefully accept the certainty of our own demise, its time, place, and manner are far more obscure and unknown. Understanding the resources, options, and support systems that may be available to us is an important part of that process.

End-of-Life doulas provide support to the individual and their loved ones, are knowledgeable on matters ranging from practical to spiritual, and help people identify how they want to live well, with choice, healing and thoughtfulness, as they near their death.

In this program we have a panel of three such practitioners, all with different backgrounds, experience, and practices. Join them for a compelling evening of discussion and an opportunity to have your questions and concerns answered.

  • Michele Bograd is an End-of-Life doula and psychologist.  She was the first End-of-Life doula at Tufts Medical Care at Home.  
  • Nancy Kendrick became an End-of-Life doula in 2020 in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. She has previous experience helping people navigate transitions in HR and Move Management roles.
  • Angela Sakakeeny is an End-of-Life doula, Reiki instructor and a complimentary therapist. She currently works with hospice patients at the High Pointe House in Haverhill.

This program is part of an on-going series titled ‘You’ve Been Dying To Know About …” conceived and developed by Andover resident, Richard Davis.

This program will be recorded. A link to the recording will be shared with everyone who registers.
