HOSPICE HEART STORIES
The gentlest way for the worst to happen
In August 2018, when the at-home treatments were not sufficient in managing her pain, Pam decided that she would like to move into an available bed at the Chatham-Kent Hospice. Scott acknowledged that driving Pam to the Hospice was the most difficult thing he ever had to do. “Even as I was driving her to the Hospice, I wondered if we were doing the right thing,” shared Scott, “but once we arrived, I knew it was the right move. All of us felt a calm we hadn’t felt in several months.”
