I called Christmas Eve to say my Father wanted to come home to be with his Family Christmas Day and to die at home. He needed a person to be with him at night. I called End of Life Doula UK to ask for support. After a short pause I heard the words 'We can do that'. My Father died at home with me at his side – the Doula gave me the confidence and support I needed to fulfil his wish.

He [the End of Life Doula] was indispensable – he stepped in to do anything we needed and was 100% reliable and compassionate in those last months.

I was on my knees and needed respite from the care of my Partner who had MND. The Doula stepped in at short notice to cover me and she also talked to the GP to get additional care so I could cope and spend good quality time with Neil.

Mum was in a Care Home. She was frightened of dying. She needed someone to talk to about her hopes and fears before she died. Two Doulas were made available to be with her night and day to soothe and comfort her and she went peacefully. I am most grateful because without them I am sure she would have died in distress.

I needed to get my affairs in order because I am a single Woman who lives on her own and don't want to leave a mess for Others' to sort out. M helped me do my Advance Decision to Refuse Treatment and my Advance Statement. She made it simple and a pleasure to do! Thank you, M!

L was there for the hardest of times from when K was told that there was no more treatment she could be given, during the last weeks making cups of tea, doing housework, relieving me to sit with K right through to helping me plan K's funeral. I call L every now and then as we went through so much together to make K's dying as good as it could be. My heart is broken.
