One of the most poignant and powerful things a person can do is to be there for someone at the end of life, providing support and care in those critical months or weeks. Millions of Americans find themselves in a caregiving role for a dying friend or family member. Others feel called upon to work or volunteer for people in the twilight days before their passage from this world.

A special one-day training with end-of-life expert Suzanne O'Brien will teach the skills that you need for caregiving at all stages of this ultimate journey. A nurse, educator, and author of bestselling books, O'Brien will offer her Level 1 "End-of-Life Doula Training" course in Rhinebeck on Tuesday, October 27. Empowering, practical, and uplifting, the training is infused with bedside stories from O'Brien's extensive experience of creating what she calls "positive passings" for people around the world.

This is a rare chance to train locally and in person with O'Brien, whose teachings have a global reach. The course is $15, or free to those in need. She also offers a free/donation online version of this training; for information, visit Suzannebobrien.com.
