Hospice helps a family feel ‘normal’ even at the end
The hospice staff’s understanding, kindness, compassion and care made it feel like Kristen was the only person in the building. “The staff listened to Kristen, empowered her to make decisions and treated her with dignity and respect. Simply – it was beautiful” shared her sister Melanie. Her daughter Emma remembers being encouraged to climb into bed beside her mom like she used to at home.
“It felt like the staff and volunteers loved being there and helping people. I loved that I could do normal stuff like watch TV in bed with Mom and when I had to leave, I knew she was in good hands,” shared Emma.
