Accompanying the Dying describes the human skill and art of companioning someone through dying. There is a wide gap in this knowing (of how to accompany the dying), which is why this book is timely and needed at this juncture of the “death positive” movement. The book is meant to empower us as a society to understand how to die well in this modern age. Deanna describes the newly emerging role of the “end-of-life doula,” which is a non-medical role that provides practical, emotional, and spiritual support to the dying and their family. This role is a powerful solution to the looming crisis in health care as our baby boomers and their elders age and die in the oncoming years.
