End of Life Practitioners are non-medical members of the palliative multi disciplinary teams. They are well trained, skilled and informed and there are many types.
ELSA supports End of Life Companions (Doulas), End of Life Counselors, Perinatal Bereavement Facilitators and Transitional Coaches. EOLPs support in non medical and non clinical ways in order to assist individuals and families through the emotional, spiritual and psychological changes that come with the process of facing death, and dying.
The process of support from fatal diagnosis to the active dying phase and beyond requires a team and collaborative effort, and ELSA is very supportive of these joint opportunities to service our communities and the amazing people that invite us into these very precious final journeys
End of Life Companions, also commonly known as Death Doulas, accompany the dying through the period of preparation, readiness and during the active dying stage.

End of Life Counselors are certified counselors with professional bodies in South Africa, and are legally allowed to provide counselling. They specialize in the area of fatal diagnosis, facing death, grief, trauma and bereavement. End of Life Counsellors also offer family counselling to ensure that the impact of long term illness or sudden death is dealt with as it occurs within the family.
Transitional coaches guide and support individuals after loss and/or recovery. They work with individuals who have undergone major changes to help them transition into the next stage of their plans
ELSA is keen to partner with allied EOL Professionals. We are keen to build a referral network for our client & their families to specialized services. Collaboration is key to ensuring all our clients' needs are met. If you are a Palliative Care provider, currently active in this space, please reach out out to us.
Multi Disciplinary teams rock!
