Before working in hospice I do not remember considering how connections (heart/mind/time) would affect me personally and or affect the work.

I heard someone say they thought the hardest part of working in hospice would be “getting attached to the person.”

Attaching could lead to an unhealthy perspective.  BUT… respecting and connecting and enjoying a person sure would bring you into a type of LIVING that will be felt when that sweet person dies.

I hope I am an empathizer!
