November is National Hospice/Palliative Care Month – Share Your Story

Posted by ididnotknowwhattosay on November 15, 2010

As part of National Hospice/Palliative Care Month we would like to encourage you to share your stories on how your local hospice provided compassionate care to a terminally ill loved one and/or grief support to you, your family and friends. 

Our Hospice Story

When my mother was terminally ill, our local hospice in North Hollywood, CA provided us with caring individuals that assisted my mom with daily routines.  Bernadette was one of the most compassionate and loving individuals I have ever met.  She handled my mom like she was her own mother.  What an amazing gift this woman had to be able to express such pure love for a person she barely knew.   

The individuals that dedicate themselves to helping the terminally ill and their families rarely receive the recognition and appreciation they deserve.  Families are so overwhelmed with grief that it is not until the grief has lifted that they can truly appreciate the amazing work these individuals do every day. 

For all of you that are dedicated to service through Hospice, I thank you for your amazing ability to show compassion and love every day.  Your gift is truly priceless.
