Tales of a hospice volunteer
I've been a hospice volunteer since November 2009. I'm mostly, but not always, with elderly patients with Alzheimer's or other dementia.
I often think and reflect on my patients and my experiences, but I don't have many people I can talk to about it. I'm hoping this blog will draw in like-minded folks for good conversation. Please do join in.
Everything written here is 100% true. Except for these things:
- patient names are changed
- details that aren't pertinent to the story are changed to obscure identity
But the stories are true. My thoughts and feelings are true. That's the whole point.
