Along Side of You

Several times in my career I have heard people say to me, “How can you do the work you do?”  As a Hospice Nurse, I understand this question on the emotional side.  Facing terminal illnesses along side of clients when you are the nurse can be challenging, raw and heartbreaking.  Especially when death happens over and over…over and over…and over and over again.

Yet, when we each have this opportunity to come along side and enter in to a real life process there can be more energy and more fuel for life than you could ever expect.  As a nurse, we are involved with people as their situation arises.  It is always a different feeling and story when it is your own people, happening inside of your own family.  It is like another part of your heart and mind get affected.

Either way, my family or yours, as a Hospice Nurse I will assure you…we are with you, we care about your situation and want to be as helpful as life can allow us to be.
